The 42nd Seamen’s Memorial Service is set to happen on Sunday in Canso.
Ray White, a member of the Canso Lion’s Club, said the community has a long history associated with the sea. He said the event is meant as a memorial for the fishermen who lost their lives at sea and remembers those who made a life-long contribution to the community. He said it also highlights the importance of the fishery to the province.
