How a rainbow poppy from the U.K. reportedly led to a student suspension in Manitoba.

Natalie Salisbury, 17, said she was accused of hate speech and suspended from Stonewall Collegiate Institute until after Nov. 11 for protesting the rainbow poppy

When Julie Fearnley decided to make a rainbow-coloured poppy in 2018, she thought it was an innocent, noble gesture. While users are still trying to get their hands on the glossy badge because “they like the design and what they believe it stands for,” backlash against the modified poppy seeped into Canada.

Should poppies be updated to reflect changing times?

What’s happening

The most ubiquitous symbol of Remembrance Day --when the country honours fallen Canadian soldiers on Nov. 11--is the red poppy. The flower was made famous by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae in the poem In Flanders Field. Replicas of the poppy are now pinned to clothing as a reminder of those who sacrificed their lives. But poppies are subject to strict rules, from how they can be worn to what colour they can be, which has turned into an international argument.
