A Montreal mall is getting criticism for bringing in Santa on Remembrance Day. Saint Nick arrives at the mall an hour before ceremonies to honour Canada's war dead. People on social media say they want Santa to visit another time, but the mall says Santa's elaborate helicopter entrance can't be rescheduled. The mall has apologized on Facebook: "We are profoundly sorry to all of those who were shocked by our choice of date. We will take all necessary steps to honour all those who have served our country on November 11."
