The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - Ed­i­tor@CBN­com­pass.ca

The Com­pass checked out school assem­blies and cer­e­monies through­out its cov­er­age area and has se­lected some stand­out im­ages.

A Sunny Re­mem­brance Day in 2015 may have en­cour­aged more peo­ple to come out than usual. Every­where

The Com­pass showed up, large crowds were gath­ered to show re­spect to those who did what they could dur­ing dif­fi­cult times in an ef­fort to bring peace.

Here are a few of the best pic­tures we took at events held in Car­bon­ear, Har­bour Grace, Old Per­li­can, Pla­cen­tia and Spa­niard’s Bay.
