Poppy campaign launches

The Royal Canadian Legion has kicked off the 2022 National Poppy Campaign.

The annual campaign launched today.

The traditional Poppy is a bit different this year, the Poppy is now biodegradable and is made of paper, cotton velvet, plaster, moss, and bamboo.

The Legion says it will take a few years for residual stock to be depleted, but eventually all Poppies and wreaths used during the campaign will be biodegradable.

The poppy is worn on the left lapel and close to the heart to recognize the sacrifice of soldiers in times of war.
