The Lieutenant Governor received the symbolic First Poppy, officially opening the 2018 Poppy Campaign at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
The First Poppy is presented to the Lieutenant Governor annually as the official opening of the Poppy Campaign. The Poppy Campaign is run by the Royal Canadian Legion (Ontario Command) and raises money for Canadian Veterans.
An honour to accept the first poppy today from the @RoyalCdnLegion. Pleased to share this moment with the veterans of @Sunnybrook, particularly in this historic year as we mark the 100th anniversary of the #WW1 Armistice. Lest we forget. #WWI100 pic.twitter.com/LqOpadxTvA
