November 11, 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice which ended WWI and brought relief to the world. At the time Canada's population was 8 million people. More than 650,000 men and women served in WWI from Canada and Newfoundland (Newfoundland didn't join Confederation until 1949).

Canada's participation on the battlefields in Europe were marked with a three month period of victories at the end of the war from August 8 to November 11, 1918 that were known as Canada's Hundred Days.

After the war Canada was no longer viewed as a colony of England.

The Royal Canadian Legion is encouraging spiritual centres across Canada to ring their bells as part of the Bells of Peace at sunset on Sunday Nov 11. Churches in Flesherton, Markdale and Feversham will be taking part.
