Claim: A meme published by the right-wing Facebook page Canada Proud claims Remembrance Day ceremonies were "banned" by "the government."

The meme shows an image of a City of Ottawa dump truck blocking off a deserted intersection at Elgin and Albert in Ottawa near the National War Memorial, accompanied with text reading "Remembrance Day Ceremonies: Banned."

That image is juxtaposed with an image of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a Black Lives Matter protest on Parliament Hill in June, with text that reads: "Mass protests: Still okay."
