I'm going to encourage the public to wear the poppy, particularly in light of recent events," said Mayor Régis Labeaume after having a poppy pinned to his lapel by Claude Racine, president of the Lt. Col. J. Charles Forbes, RMWO (Québec, no. 265) branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, at a recent event at Quebec City Hall.
