Interpreters to Mark Start of First World War

An interpretive event to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War is taking place Monday at The Forks.

Parks Canada is hosting the event, which will include the reading of government telegrams issued in 1914 about the declaration of war and excerpts from Prime Minister Robert Borden’s speech to Parliament at the outbreak of the conflict.

Parks Canada will also have interpretive displays at The Forks National Historic Site this weekend to mark the anniversary.

The event will be held in front of the Parks Canada Orientation Circle (just east of the Scotiabank Stage) at 11 a.m.
