This clock outside the Hudson’s Bay department store in downtown Calgary is the physical embodiment of that joke about a broken clock being right twice a day: In this spot, it’s always 3:26. (Until they fix the clock, that is.)
Last year, the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer in downtown Calgary began displaying thousands of knitted poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day. They are back this year.
Each was hand-knitted or crocheted by Calgarians and people elsewhere around the world, in memory of our those who fell in service of Canada and our rights and freedoms.
We will always remember.
