Identifying Canada's War Dead

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

More than 27,000 Canadians are still unaccounted for on battlefields across Europe and Korea. It's the painstaking job of the Canadian Armed Forces' Casualty Identification Program to use forensics, historical documents, and detective work to identify remains, give those soldiers back their identities, and reunite them with their families. This Remembrance Day, Steve Paikin speaks to forensic anthropologist Sarah Lockyer, who helps lead the program.
