Canadian Forces Veterans Ride Free on August 22 - Warriors' Day Parade

Aug 04, 2015

Canadian Forces veterans and a friend may ride for free with MiWay on Saturday, August 22 to attend the 94th Warriors’ Day Parade.

"Each year we look forward to the Warriors' Day Parade to pay tribute to Canadian Forces veterans for the sacrifices they have made for their country," said Geoff Marinoff, director, Transit.

To receive a free ride on MiWay, veterans must identify themselves to a transit operator by wearing their uniform or displaying a medal or any other item that distinguishes them as a veteran.

The Warriors' Day Parade is a tradition that originated in 1921. It occurs annually at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto. This year’s event marks the 70th anniversary of victory in the Second World War. The parade begins at 10:30 a.m.
