The easter Canadians, those along the St. Lawrence probably do remember the Empress, but if you go a few provinces west, you will also get blank stares from almost everyone if you bring up the Empress. Western Canada doesn't know much about it I'm sad to say...
Yesterday marked the 92nd anniversary of the sinking. The annual memorial service was held on Sunday afternoon organized by the Salvation Army. A few hymns were sung and the names of the 150 Salvation Army Officers that were lost, were read out.
It was a beautiful service and it was a gorgeous day for it.
