At the Going Down of the Same

Since October 28 there has been a light show on Parliament Hill to commemorate our Canadian war dead.  Each evening 117,000 poppies have dropped down the Peace Tower and the facade of the Centre Block.   One poppy for each Canadian killed in a conflict since 1899 when we first took part in a war as a country.

 

On this day in 1989: Germans begin to tear down the Berlin Wall.
