Educate & Honour
The final 100 days of the First World War — from 8 August to 11 November 1918 — came to be known as the Hundred Days Offensive. The Canadian Corps' significant contributions along the Western Front generated the name "Canada's Hundred Days." During this time, Canadian and allied forces pushed the German Army from Amiens, France, west to Mons, Belgium, in a series of battles — a drive that ended in German surrender and the end of the war.
As President of No Stone Left Alone, I invite you to journey through our organization`s educational outlook on Canada`s contribution during the First World War. We are pleased to introduce to you, students Hayden Love and Spencer Love, who have volunteered to compile a journey of THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS that we want to share with you. This is the story of our brave Canadians, their days, their mission, their families, and how they changed the outcome of a war. Today we still live the honour of their sacrifices. Each day from today, 8 August 2018 until Remembrance Day, 11 November 2018, we hope that you will honour their stories by sharing and discussing them with those you love (click here for a link to the stories). Let’s hold on to our freedoms and ensure that we remember. We will take the time to heed the lessons of those veterans’ voices that can teach us from first-hand experience what peace is and why it is so important to hold onto.
Lest We Forget,
Maureen Bianchini Purvis
