Vernon remembers

It has been 11 years since the world was shaken by the 9/11 tragedy.

But the world, including Vernon, has not forgotten.

Vernon firefighters, RCMP, paramedics and other emergency personnel and dignitaries marked the anniversary of 9/11 at the Vernon Fire Department Tuesday.

The event, which included a moment of silence and prayer from Chaplain David MacBain, honoured the victims, but specifically the heroes who gave their lives in the line of duty that day.

It was also an occasion to remember all those emergency workers who have since lost their lives, including Enderby firefighter Dan Botkin (who was killed at a fire in December).
