People place poppies on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the National War Memorial following the National Remembrance Day Ceremony in Ottawa, on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021. The legion said anyone who wants to use the poppy should consult with the organization first. (Justin Tang/The Canadian Press) Did you buy your poppy online? It may be one of hundreds of unauthorized products Red poppies from the Royal Canadian Legion are a common sight at stores and on lapels across Canada leading up to Remembrance Day. Also common this time of year? Poppy products sold online that are not authorized by the legion. It's a growing problem for the organization, which has registered the trademark of the poppy image to "safeguard" it as a symbol of remembrance. The legion says the number of unauthorized products it's seen has almost tripled since 2021. "I feel as if it is an insult to those who have served, who are serving and have died for our country," said Mike Turner. He served in the military for eight years and now helps organize the poppy campaign at a Royal Canadian Legion branch in Toronto.

The airlines each allege in court documents that they shouldn't have to pay, because the CTA — Canada's transport regulator and a quasi-judicial tribunal — misinterpreted Canada's compensation regulations. Consumer advocate and lawyer John Lawford said if the airlines win their appeals, it could affect other compensation claims for flight disruptions. "Basically anytime the airline has a staffing shortage of any kind, that could be … an event that's out of their control and therefore all those claims would fail," said Lawford. WestJet and Air Canada told CBC News they abide by Canada's Air Passenger Protections Regulations (APPR). WestJet said it has launched its appeal to ensure the rules are fairly applied. "There is no one-size-fits-all crew issue and we believe that's what the CTA is trying to do, is to make all crew issues the same," said Andy Gibbons, WestJet's vice-president of government relations.
