The 2018 Poppy Campaign is underway in Saskatchewan.
The event kicked off Friday at Government House, with the poppy being pinned on Lieutenant-Governor W. Thomas Molloy.
Molloy then pinned one on 98 year old World War Two veteran, Harold Hague.
For Hague, the poppy means a great deal.
“It’s actually been a leader in our attempts to keep the voice of the veterans alive.”
On the other hand, for the Lieutenant-Governor, pinning the poppy onto Hague was an honour.
“It also makes me think about how I was born at a time when I didn’t have to serve for my country,” said Molloy. “I look back at the people, the cadets that are here, were the same age of many of those who died in World War One.”
