OTTAWA – The Royal Canadian Legion is holding a virtual Poppy Drop on Parliament Hill.

The virtual display runs between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. every night until Remembrance Day, projecting the poppies onto the Peace Tower and Centre Block.

A projection of 117,000 poppies are shown falling, one for each of Canada’s fallen soldiers.

Two video screens are also set up, featuring a photo montage of Canadian veterans who served and sacrificed.
