To mark the 50th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada, the Hon. Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, welcomed Ontarians to form a living re-creation of the Canadian flag on centre ice at Ryerson University’s Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly Maple Leaf Gardens) on February 13, 2015. Renowned large-scale photographer Edward Burtynsky captured this newly iconic image.
