11:53Giant St. George ribbon, auto rallies & parades mark V-Day in Canada
Montreal’s skyline welcomed a plane carrying a huge Victory Day banner as part of celebrations organized by descendants of Soviet veterans. Communities across Canada marked 70 years since victory over Nazi Germany in WW2 with rallies and parades.
People who gathered to honor the memory of Second World War heroes and victims in the Quebecois city of Montreal on Saturday watched a plane soar in the skies with a large ribbon of St. George flying behind it. The action was proposed by activists and authorized by the city.
A V-Day auto rally organized by a Russian activist on Facebook turned out to be hugely popular, with several hundreds of cars reportedly showing up for a procession. As well as carrying Red victory banners and simply Soviet flags, some took Russian, Belorussian, Ukrainian, Kazakh, Moldovan, Canadian and other national flags.
After the rally, participants gathered in Montreal’s Angrignon Park to honor the living WW2 veterans and share stories.
