Bison Transport supports second annual Wreaths Across Canada ceremony in Manitoba

Friday Dec 04, 2015

Bison Transport is proud to support the second annual Wreaths Across Canada (WAC) ceremony in Manitoba, which will take place Sunday, December 6, at the Field of Honour in Brookside Cemetery.

Bison partnered with the Royal Canadian Air Force 17 Wing and several other branches of our Canadian Armed Forces to make Manitoba’s second wreath placing ceremony happen. The event will be attended by members of our Canadian Armed Forces, Cadets, The Knights of Columbus and veterans. The event is also open to the general public.

Bison Transport arranged for the purchase and transportation of all 260 wreaths, which will be placed at the beginning of every row of headstones. The Field of Honour at Brookside Cemetery is Canada’s single largest Military Cemetery, with over 11,000 fallen military personnel buried there.

“In line with Bison’s commitment to help Wreaths Across Canada expand this initiative, we continue to work hard to gain the involvement of our industry, the business community at large and individual citizens,” said Rob Penner, President and COO of Bison Transport. “We purchased the wreaths and provided the logistics assistance necessary to deliver the wreaths to the site. We have also generated monetary support from PMTC, CTA, OTA and many other private organizations.”

Since 2011, WAC has been organizing and placing wreaths of remembrance on the headstones of thousands of veterans in Beechwood National Military Cemetery in Ottawa. The goal of WAC is to expand this practice so that every Military Cemetery in Canada is adorned with wreaths.
