The Cenotaph is a public monument in Montreal.
The Governor General of Canada, Lord Byng of Vimy, unveiled Montreal's Cenotaph in the Place du Canada, a part of Dominion Square, in 1921. The monument was inspired by the Cenotaph, London (1920).
On the sixth anniversary of the armistice (November 11, 1924) a crowd assembled at the monument as usual. At exactly eleven o'clock the assembled crowd fell utterly silent for two minutes.
