Featured in this video is the Great War talk by John Goheen on the Battle of Passchendaele followed by a candlelight vigil held in the trench at the Port Moody station Museum where Charlotte Cameron read from her book containing her one-act play Running: The Alex Decoteau Story, presented by PlayConnect. The play tells the story of Alex Decoteau who was the first Indigenous police officer in Canada, a runner in the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, and finally, a message runner in the Great War who died at the Battle of Passchendaele.
