It’s the Remembrance Day edition of Midweek. Today, a chunk of the show is dedicated to our country’s gallant soldiers. We will touch base with our correspondents who will give us live updates from the Canadian War Museum on events being held to mark the day.

Kabriya Coghlan will also explore recent reports of increased suicide rates among Canadian soldiers who served in Afghanistan.

Playwright Julia Mackey brings her play Jake’s Gift to Ottawa. Veronica Green catches up with her. The play is about a war veteran who returned to Normandy for the 60th anniversary of D-Day.

Tune in at noon after the BBC news for a wonderful radio experience. You can listen on CKCU 93.1 FM on your radio or on your TuneIn app. You can also listen live here:
