Seamen's Memorial Service chair says recognition is growing

The province's Seamen's Memorial Service will be held at the monument in Canso Sunday (13th).

Chair of the event, Ray White, says it's important to honour the men and women who lost their lives in the fishing industry.

He says many Nova Scotians are impacted, and the history is important for the community to know.

White tells The Hawk the recognition is growing.

"I think the Department of Fisheries and the province realize first of all, the importance of fisheries," he says. "It has a very personal impact on many families throughout Nova Scotia."

This will be the 41st annual event.

White says it's not just about honouring those lost.

"It's also to highlight that there are dangers associated with the fishery," he says. "With the hope that those involved in that fishery will take the necessary precautions to avoid tragedy at sea."

White says wreathes will be laid at the monument ahead of next Sunday's (20th) boat parade as fishermen take the wreathes out to sea.
