The City of Côte Saint-Luc has released video of its 1974 Remembrance Day parade and ceremony.
The release of this video is part of an ongoing effort by Côte Saint-Luc to share its history with the public. Côte Saint-Luc has digitized more than 1,000 photos from its archives and posted them online. Visit CoteSaintLuc.org/photogallery to see photos.
The 41-year old film was donated by Sheldon Caplan, whose his parents Albert and Lily Caplan, were active in Royal Canadian Legion and Auxiliary. The city digitized the 16-millimetre film and is making it available on YouTube to honour its veterans this Remembrance Day. The film includes then-Mayor Samuel Moskovitch and other members of council of that era.

“One of my goals has been to help gather old photos, films, documents and other artifacts from the history of Côte Saint-Luc,” said Acting Mayor Glenn J. Nashen. “It will be presented in some combination of rotating public display and website. We’d like suggestions from people in the community who are willing to volunteer and help build a Côte Saint-Luc Historical Society.”
Côte Saint-Luc hopes the Côte Saint-Luc Historical Society can help unearth more gems and bring them to the public. To volunteer for the Côte Saint-Luc Historical Society, call Darryl Levine at 514-485-6800 ext. 1802 or email dlevine@cotesaintluc.org
