Media Advisory - Great Wall of Daffodils To Descend Upon Toronto

TORONTO, March 15 /CNW/ - The Canadian Cancer Society returns to Canada Blooms, the largest floral and horticultural event in Canada featuring six acres of stunning landscaped gardens and more than 100,000 square feet of green thumb shopping.
