VANCOUVER -- Just ahead of Remembrance Day, students from four Catholic elementary schools took a field trip to Mountain View Cemetery, poppies in hand.

Children from St. Mary's, St. Joseph the Worker, St. Catherine's, and St. Helen's gathered to pray, read poems, sing songs, and place poppies on graves during No Stone Left Alone, an annual event held at the cemetery to honour members of Canada's military.
