Coldwell Banker Haida Realty in Leduc, Alta. held its 15th annual flag-planting event on Canada Day, with volunteers rising with the sun to plant miniature Canadian flags on every Leduc resident’s lawn. The volunteers planted about 12,000 flags in a three-hour period as the sun came up.

“When we started it, we wanted to try and stimulate some interest in the community and get people to do their own Canada Day activities,” Bob Buttar, broker/owner of Coldwell Banker Haida, told

The tradition also supports the local food bank. Residents were asked to leave non-perishable food out on their front door steps between 7 am and 9 am. Food was collected by volunteers from Leduc Composite High School sports teams.
