The Highway of Heroes - Canada is the only country in the world that repatriates all their fallen soldiers to the same location (Trenton Air Base, Ontario). Since 2002 supporters of Canadian Troops have been lining the route on the overpasses of the highway; flying a flag, saluting and showing support as the procession of vehicles passes on their way to the official coroner's office for the Troops located in Toronto. In 2007 the Macdonald-Carter Highway 401 became the Highway of Heroes.

The stretch of highway 401 running from Trenton Ontario in remembrance of Canada's fallen soldiers. The soldiers are taken from Canada Forces Base (Trenton) to their final resting place.

A hearty dose of vintage Canadian charm (beaver very much included, naturally), and an RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officer.

Poppy Quarter

Poppy Quarter - I had one of these on me and gave it away as a souvenir when I visited people in the States. You're not going to find these any place else, I reckon.
