Lest we forget. Global News is once again providing viewers with poignant coverage of Remembrance Day, honouring Canadians who have served in the military. From nation-wide coverage of the burgeoning student-centred movement, No Stone Left Alone, to special editions of Global National in Ottawa, Global News is honoured to present the past and present of how Canadians remember.
The No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation operates Remembrance Day events for students with the mission to place poppies on the headstones of veterans, while educating on the stories of sacrifice by members of the armed forces. Since its launch in 2011, more than 100 ceremonies now occur in 53 communities across Canada and are attended by elected officials, military, indigenous leaders, and local dignitaries.
On Monday, November 5, Global News will air coverage of No Stone Left Alone ceremonies in its local evening newscasts, with live streams of the events available online at Globalnews.ca and each station’s Facebook page. Live streams will be available at:
- Global BC and Global Okanagan at 9:30 a.m. PT
- Global Edmonton, Global Calgary, and Global Lethbridge at 10:30 a.m. MT
- Global Regina, Global Saskatoon, and Global Winnipeg at 11:30 a.m. CT
- Global News in Ontario (Toronto, Durham, Peterborough, Kingston, Ottawa) and Global Montreal at 12:30 p.m. ET

Then on Sunday, November 11, Global News will air a Remembrance Day news special, titled No Stone Left Alone, airing at 10 a.m. PT/MT/CT/ET, and at 12:30 p.m. AT. The 30-minute presentation will include stories woven together from No Stone Left Alone events across Canada, and feature students sharing their reflections of fallen soldiers’ stories.

Following No Stone Left Alone, Global National anchor Dawna Friesen hosts Canada Remembers; a live, commercial-free, network news special, airing on Sunday, November 11 at 10:30 a.m. ET/CT. Friesen will be joined in Ottawa by special guest Dean Oliver, military historian and director of research at the Canadian Museum of History, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. That evening, Friesen will anchor Global National (5:30 p.m. PT/MT/CT and 6.30 ET/AT) from Ottawa, with Chief Political Correspondent David Akin and Ottawa Bureau Chief Mercedes Stephenson live from the National War Memorial, while correspondent Mike Armstrong reports from Belgium.
