On October 30, Chaplain General Brigadier-General Guy Belisle announced that chaplains will now be permitted to say public prayers at Remembrance Day celebrations this November 11, according to an email obtained by The Epoch Times.

“In light of the questions that have been raised concerning the Directive, any chaplain who participates in a Remembrance Day ceremony this year can propose a spiritual reflection or opt for the practice of recent years, which included the recitation of a preamble,” wrote Belisle.

“I cannot allow focus to be taken away from the importance of Remembrance Day Ceremony and our commitment to honor the sacrifice of all who have gone before us in service to Canada,” he added.

Belisle further revealed that a committee will be formed to review the new directive, saying, “If changes/amendments are necessary, we’ll make them.”
