Sunday, 9am MT – This Sunday, Canadians will honour a century since the end of one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen.
On November 11, 1918, the front page of the New York Times announced an end to the First World War with a blaring headline: “Armistice Signed, End of the War! Berlin Seized by Revolutionists: New Chancellor Begs for Order; Ousted Kaiser Flees to Holland.”
While the Armistice happened long before she was born, Maureen Bianchini Purvis has dedicated herself to honouring the day — and all of those who have fallen in battle in the past century. Her mother, a war veteran, made it her final wish that her daughter never forget.
Not only had she not forgotten, Maureen has made sure that others remember. Eight years ago, she started the No Stone Left Alone Foundation, dedicated to paying homage to serving members of the military and imparting the horrible truth of war to young people in the hope that history will not be repeated.
Tony King’s documentary tells the story of the remarkable organization and its tireless founder, as well as the impact it has had on veterans and students in Canada. Tune in Sunday morning at 9am MT to hear the piece.
