The White Peace Poppy Campaign began in the mid-1920s as a response to growing militarism in Britain. The poppy commemorates all those who have died in war, including civilian casualties. We speak with two people who are participating in a White Poppy wreath-laying ceremony today, November 11, in Vancouver. Teresa Gagné is co-founder of the White Peace Poppy Campaign in Canada. Fazineh Keita was a child soldier in Sierra Leone. He’s founder and co-director of the Innocence Lost Foundation.
