Bells to toll across K-W, Guelph on Remembrance Day
Bells will ring out across country at sunset Sunday
At 5 p.m. on Sunday, bells will toll throughout Waterloo region and also in Guelph.
It's part of a national event called Bells of Peace. The Royal Canadian Legion says it's to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
"The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end," the Legion said on its website.
