Thousands of Canadians descended upon the nation's capital Wednesday to pay tribute to the fallen who gave their lives for Canada.

It's a simple gesture, to stand and be silent, a minuscule effort in tribute to the monumental sacrifice men and women have made for the country they love.

And on Nov. 11, Canadians all over remember that love, and do their best to match it.

They remember, no matter the weather
