The Highway of Heroes tree planting campaign gets a big boost at the annual Canada Blooms show in Toronto this year.
Canada Blooms at the CNE grounds in Toronto will pay tribute to The Highway of Heroes which runs from Trenton to Toronto, honoring Canada’s fallen soldiers.
Premier Kathleen Wynne will officiate at a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the show Friday morning, and tour the special 5,000 square foot garden.
Chair of the Highway of Heroes campaign Mark Cullen released a statement saying “The garden will emulate a stretch of highway, including an overpass, representing the many bridges that Canadians gathered on during the Afghan conflict and will capture the inspiration behind our campaign.
Highway of Heroes Fundraising Manager Mike Hurley spoke to Quinte News.
A few years ago a tree campaign was launched to plant two million trees within that stretch of highway 401.
