Toronto Royal Canadian Legion and TTC launch annual Poppy Campaign
Canadian war veterans and peacekeepers teamed up with students from Davisville Public School to launch the Toronto Royal Canadian Legion’s annual TTC Poppy Campaign. Canadian war veterans and peacekeepers pinned poppies on students to remind Toronto to wear a poppy and honour the men and women who served Canada.
The TTC welcomed several former TTC employees who served Canada in war and peacekeeping operations.
