Moose Jaw Express.com - - News -

Of­fi­cially adopted in Canada in 1921 by the Great War Vet­er­ans’ As­so­ci­a­tion (one of the pre­de­ces­sors of to­day’s Royal Canadian Le­gion), pop­pies are rec­og­nized as the national sym­bol of re­mem­brance for the Canadian men and women who gave their lives dur­ing mil­i­tary ser­vice around the world. Funds raised through the Poppy Cam­paign support pro­grams for vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies.
