Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson has challenged the capital to “Paint the Town Orange” next May with special tulips commemorating the 75th anniversary liberation of the Netherlands by Canadian-led troops in the Second World War.
The “Liberation75″ campaign wants to see 1.1 million Liberation75 tulips blooming across Canada next spring. The 1.1 million figure represents a bloom for each Canadian who served in the conflict.
