TORONTO (November 7, 2019) – CTV News honours the courageous men and women who have served and continue to serve in the Canadian Forces with REMEMBRANCE DAY 2019, a live, 90-minute special airing commercial-free on Monday, Nov. 11 beginning at 10:30 a.m. ET on CTV, CTV News Channel, CTVNews.ca, the CTV News app, and everywhere CTV content can be found.

Led by CTV News’ Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme, the live broadcast from Ottawa’s National War Memorial unites Canadians across the country, saluting the bravery, dedication, and sacrifice of the Canadian Forces.

Joining LaFlamme on the REMEMBRANCE DAY 2019 special to deliver unique insights, personal reflections, and historical context are former Chief of Defence Staff and retired Canadian General Rick Hillier; retired Master Corporal Paul Franklin, who lost both legs in a suicide bombing while serving in Afghanistan; and Canadian historian and author Charlotte Gray.

The special also features live reports from CTV News National Affairs Correspondent Omar Sachedina and Ottawa Correspondent Annie Bergeron-Oliver.

CTV’s W5, Canada’s most-watched documentary program, also marks the occasion with “The Liberators”. Airing Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and everywhere CTV content can be found, the special report details the heroic efforts of Canadian troops to bring freedom and dignity to the people of the Netherlands from Nazi occupation during the final months of the Second World War. It’s a story of liberation, told through the voices of two Canadian veterans who fought there, and of the Dutch who honour the Canadians’ sacrifices.

CTV News Channel delivers special coverage leading up to and throughout Remembrance Day, with special guests including Anthony Wilson-Smith, President and CEO of Historica Canada; Mark Zuehlke, author of The River Battles; Bill Shead, Royal Canadian Navy veteran and former Prairie Regional Director General for Veterans Affairs Canada; Henry Hemming, author of Agents of Influence, and more.
