Hundreds of people turned out to the White Rock cenotaph on Sunday to pay tribute to Canada's fallen.

Second World War Highland Light Infantry veteran George Robinson was among attendees, as was Royal Canadian Legion executive member Jack Yang.

The morning tribute included a parade, wreath-laying and a moment's silence.

Other Remembrance Day events took place in communities including Cloverdale, Port Kells, North Delta and Whalley.
