    NEPEAN, ON, Nov. 9 /CNW/ - On Saturday, November 10, 2007, the

to Nepean-area veterans in the presence of Nepean elected officials and other

    In recognition of the service and sacrifice of the Nepean-area veterans
and surviving spouses of the Second World War, Scotiabank is very pleased to
