2. Remembrance Day: A remembrance project in Ottawa has honoured the sacrifice of Canadian soldiers on the front lines by reading their letters to loved ones back home out loud for the first time.
3. Kenney's 'Fair Deal': While experts say Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's plan to make the province more independent without separating from Canada is achievable, they warn of unforeseeable consequences.
4. Unexpected vacation: An Edmonton couple is heading to Tokyo after their 20-month-old son unknowingly entered them into a contest while playing with the buttons on their TV remote.
5. Gender reveal party: Authorities say a small plane crashed in Texas after dumping hundreds of litres of coloured water in another case of a gender reveal event gone wrong.
