True Patriot Love

The progress of provinces and territories formally coming into being within Confederation are projected onto Centre Block as part of Northern Lights, with the flags of each fluttering so convincingly that it looks like they're real, as opposed to projections of light.


The third theme of Northern Lights is Discovery And Adventure, examining explorers encountering First Nations peoples all the way to the technology of the current day, such as Canadians in space.


The fourth theme is Valour, and examines Canadian military history, particularly the First and Second World Wars, with places like Vimy Ridge and Juno Beach prominent in the program.
