A long-awaited homecoming
After more than 90 years - the remains of a Canadian woman who died in England are returning home.
We told you the story of Gladys Fowler back in the summer.
She died in London in 1917.
She was the daughter of New Brunswick MP George Fowler.
He served with the Canadian military during the First World War.
Gladys Fowler's coffin was supposed to be transported back to Canada at the end of the war but it never made it here.
Nobody knows why.
But now the British government says her body can be repatriated.
And Air Canada is flying the coffin back for free.
This weekend in Hammondvale, near Sussex, New Brunswick, Fowler will be buried beside the other members of her family.
CBC's Tom Parry has the story of the homecoming from London.
