Royal Canadian Legion Presents Virtual Poppy Drop on Parliament Hill

OTTAWA, ON, 24 October 2016 – To commemorate the launch of the 2016 Legion Poppy Campaign, The Royal Canadian Legion’s Dominion Command will conduct a virtual Poppy Drop on Parliament Hill.

From October 28th to November 11th inclusive, between 6 PM and 9 PM, a virtual Poppy Drop of 117,000 Poppies (one for each of Canada’s Fallen), will be projected each night on the Peace Tower and Centre Block on Parliament Hill.

“The virtual Poppy Drop will be a stunning, large-scale reminder of the sacrifices of Canada’s Veterans, with the added significance of having that display on the Peace Tower and Centre Block of our Parliament Buildings,” says Royal Canadian Legion Dominion President, Dave Flannigan. In addition to cascading Poppies, there will be two video screens presenting the Legion’s Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance, a photo montage of Canadian Veterans who have served and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.

The virtual Poppy Drop will be a memorable and highly symbolic visual display that will perpetuate the memory and deeds of the Fallen. We encourage everyone to come to Parliament Hill the evenings of October 28 through November 11 to take a moment to pause and remember.

It will look like this but the poppies will be falling from top of the Peace tower and Center Block to the base:

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
