Remembrance Day: Stanford Li on CBC

In an article on Remembrance Day that appeared on the CBC website on Nov. 10, Selwyn House Grade 11 student Stanford Li wrote: “As a high school student born to Chinese parents, I feel our history classes on the World Wars are too narrowly oriented towards Quebec and Western Europe.

I think it's abominable that the sacrifices of thousands of non-Canadians are ignored on Remembrance Day, even though they directly contributed to their Allies' victories.”

Stanford was a recipient of the Vimy Foundation’s 2018 Beaverbrook Vimy Prize. He travelled for two weeks to Great Britain, Belgium and France to study Canadians' contributions in the First and Second World War.
