Animal Victims of War Ceremony
November 11 @ 10:30 am
We hope that you will join us for a peaceful ceremony remembering the animals used in war both past and present at the Toronto Peace Garden at City Hall in Toronto. We will gather for about an hour or so and share a few words in honour of the animal victims of the brutality of war.
We brought the Animal Victims of War purple poppy campaign to Canada to ensure that the tens of millions of animal lives lost to war are recognized as victims and not heroes. The purple poppy campaign is a complimentary or alternative poppy to the red poppy of the Royal Canadian Legion. It is not meant in any way to undermine or reject the red poppy and its symbolism of the human lives who served and died in war. It is a way for people to recognize the significant loss of animal life that is not represented in symbol or ceremony of the red poppy.
If you would like, you can buy a Purple Poppy pin through the website link below:
We look forward to seeing you on November 11th. Please let us know if you have any questions at all.
