Poppy’s meaning not lost on most Canadians
The Royal Canadian Legion poppy campaign has begun.
For a group of Kelowna boys handing out the red lapel pins, the symbol is a reminder of the sacrifice Canadian soldiers made for our country.
For one of the few WWII veterans left in the Okanagan, the poppy is a reminder of not only the lives lost fighting for Canada’s during war but that there are fewer who still remember the sacrifices first-hand.
