I went down to Victoria's Canadian Forces recruiting centre to talk to some of the people observing VOWS' annual day of demonstration.
VOWS is calling on the Canadian Government too: "Substantially reduce military expenditures and re-allocate them to urgent social and environmental needs."
"The federal government should invest in programs that will reduce poverty and help our country transition to a low-carbon, green economy and NOT on combat missions overseas and buying new warships and fighter jets."
National and international events are organized on this day by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace and the International Peace Bureau.
