TORONTO, June 29, 2015 /CNW/ - Today Canadian Tire launched an adventurous Canada Day video that takes the red and white flag to new heights. Watch as of one proud Canadian climbs the ocean side rock wall Flatrock in Quidi Vidi (NFLD), scales the perilous Chief in Squamish (BC) and a construction crane in Toronto (ON) – just to proudly fly our flag for Canada Day.
Check out this new Canadian Tire video as the company encourages people across Canada to proudly share where they fly their flag on Canada Day using the hashtag #FlyYourCdnFlag.
Flag Fast Facts:
- The National Flag of Canada was raised for the first time ever on Parliament Hill on February 15, 1965
