The company also presented a $110,000 cheque to Wounded Warriors Canada.

"It's humbling, the courage and strength the members of our Armed Forces show every day," said Harry Hall, Vice President, Supply Chain, who is himself a veteran. "We hope this donation will make it easier for our wounded soldiers to transition back to civilian life."


By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

opp-car-regularCOLLINGWOOD - Officers from the Collingwood and The Blue Mountains detachment of the OPP charged a youth over the weekend for a theft of a poppy donation box from a local business in Collingwood.

On Saturday morning, the 8th of November 2014, police were called to attend the Tim Horton's on First Street in Collingwood for the reported theft. Police were able to view video surveillance in the store which led police to the identification and subsequent arrest of the youth. The donation box was located by a resident nearby and returned to the Royal Canadian Legion in Collingwood.

As a result, a 14 year-old youth from Collingwood is now charged with theft under $5000 and is to appear in Youth Criminal Court in Collingwood. He cannot be identified under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. (YCJA).
