"It's about what we think of as the quiet heroism of the 14,000 Canadians who landed on Normandy in the biggest invasion in world history, all of them understanding that from the moment they landed on the beach their lives were at risk," said Anthony Wilson-Smith, president and CEO of Historica Canada.

"So we wanted to tell a story of someone who really exemplified that kind of quiet heroism and have it be a story that a lot of people didn't know," he added.

'He had the opportunity to say no'

Father makes emotional appeal after son's brain punctured by skier The father of a 13-year-old North Vancouver skier who suffered a serious brain injury on Grouse Mountain makes an emotional appeal for the person responsible to come forward. David Keir says on the evening of March 30 his son Max and an unidentified man in a yellow ski jacket swerved to avoid each other while skiing down a run called The Cut. He says the man thrust a ski pole at the boy's head with sufficient force to puncture his brain. © Evan Mitsui/CBC David Keir points to the location where the pole punctured his son's skull. 'There were bone fragments and a pool of blood in his brain,' he said.

He had a wife and children and as a First World War veteran he did not have to serve again.

"He was running a farm, and he had the opportunity to say no and not take part in the war, but he put his life and everything he had on the line fully understanding the consequences," Wilson-Smith said.

The organization also felt that the North Shore Regiment, primarily from New Brunswick, was not as well known as it deserves, so highlighting their role in the fight was important.

"The story seems to be that some of the regiments from bigger Canadian cities, for example The Queen's Own Rifles from Toronto, they were from big cities that sent correspondents from the local newspapers over to war. So you go over to cover it," said Wilson-Smith.

"New Brunswick being smaller and especially a lot of the North Shore Rifles Regiment a lot of them coming from smaller towns, they didn't have that. So they never got the immediate attention that the bigger ones did, so their role as a result over time they just became overlooked," he added.

Their horse won a race. So why did Ontario wage a two-year legal battle with them to get back $1,500?

Their horse won a race. So why did Ontario wage a two-year legal battle with them to get back $1,500? Nine standardbred racehorses, with seated drivers steering each speeding animal, thundered around Georgian Downs, near Barrie, in early June of 2015. Heathers Shadow won the mile-long event and the $3,500 first-place purse money. Magic of Brussels picked up the pace after a slow start to finish runner-up, her driver Lyle MacArthur recalled. “She raced good,” MacArthur said of Magic’s hustle. Heathers Shadow, however, failed a post-race drug test, was disqualified and forfeited all prize money as the rules of racing dictate. Her trainer appealed. Racing officials dismissed it.

Finding the story

The organization spent months looking for a story "that would be very human in nature," until they decided on MacNaughton.

Jen Sguigna is one of the organization's consultant on the Heritage Minute and was critical in the organization's decision to tell MacNaughton's story.

"I'm kind of the holder of the story," said Sguigna, who works for The Juno Beach Centre.

The Centre is Canada's Second World War museum and cultural centre localed in Normandy, France. The Centre pays homage to the 45,000 Canadians who lost their lives during the War, of which 5,500 were killed during the Battle of Normandy and 359 on D-Day.

Sguigna works from Canada, but flew to France on Wednesday to be part of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

"I first heard about Archie's story in 2014 as part of a commemorative campaign that The Juno Beach Center was doing and in the years that followed I had the opportunity to meet up with his family," said Sguingna.

She said her family sent her two giant boxes and three binders full of hundres of letters that MacNaughton had written to his wife, son and daughter during the wars. They also sent his medals, which are now on display at the Centre.

Sguigna said that in reading, nearly, all his letters what stayed with her the most is his conflicting dedication between his family and to his duty, which she believes what makes the story universally appealing and relatable.

"Every letter you read he says to his wife and his children, I wish I was there at the kitchen table with you, I wish I was tending to my sheep and how there must be lots of blueberries this year and he's trying so hard to be there with them," she said.

Living in the aftermath of war

Wilson-Smith said that the effects of the battle in Normandy are still with us today in two ways.

"The first is that the world we live in is much different because we were on the side that won the war and made things better," he said.

"The second thing is that there are families who lost husbands that day, children who grew up without their fathers and small communities that were never the same because the young men who would have built their tomorrow went off to war and never came home."

He said life was changed for so many Canadians.
