Part of special ceremonies in Ottawa
Five members of the P.E.I. Regimental Band are currently in Ottawa with the band of the Ceremonial Guard, performing during the daily changing of the guard on Parliament Hill, as well as for other ceremonies and for national and international dignitaries. Members of the Band of the Ceremonial Guard go through two stages of auditions before being selected. This year the P.E.I. Regiment has a record-setting number of members in the band and the most members from any province per capita. The five men are MCpl. Devon Loney, Pte. Ryan Drew, MCpl. Michael Gallant, Cpl. Daniel MacDonald and Pte. Aaron Ellis.
