“Lest we forget” isn’t just a slogan: it’s a commitment those of us who enjoy Canada’s freedoms make because of those who have fought and sacrificed for us. It’s a recognition of what they gave to provide us with what we have.

Advocate Media and its various publications have gathered, from across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, some of the best Remembrance Day stories we’ve written. We hope these stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things will help you appreciate Remembrance Day’s significance anew. Thank you for visiting.
