Isn't it still a bit early for poppies, Ed Fast? Not even Hallowe'en. Cue: "I make no apologies for...." pic.twitter.com/Yq2bB1Du
Here is what The Royal Canadian Legion has to say on the matter:
- When is a Poppy worn?
- There is no set period when the Poppy should be worn. In fact, a person may wear a Poppy at any time. Traditionally, however, the Poppy is worn during the Remembrance period, which is from the last Friday in October to the end of the day on 11 November. It is also suggested that Poppies be worn at other commemorative events throughout the year, such as the Battle of the Atlantic, the Battle of Britain, a memorial service at a Legion Convention and other similar occasions.The Poppy is also worn by Colour Parties when on parade and by members attending funeral services for veterans.
Here is a link to a few pictures from the Alberta Legislature taken this past Friday of people who obviously are not as smart as our pal Glen.
You get the point. The evidence is clear.
Too bad McGregor didn't.
