The No Stone Left Alone project honours the sacrifices made during the wars by having students place a poppy on the grave of a solider. 

The initiative started in 2011 at Beechmount cemetery in Edmonton and has now spread to cemeteries across the city.

An event was also held in Jasper this year. 

The CBC's Kim Trynacity attended the ceremony on Friday. View her report by clicking on the image.
