In pictures: Moose Jaw shines blue to commemorate the RCAF centennial

On the night of April 1, the Royal Canadian Air Force's centennial was commemorated through blue-lit landmarks across Canada including Moose Jaw's City Hall

On the night of April 1, Moose Jaw’s City Hall lit up its clock tower in blue to recognize the 100-year anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force as a distinct branch of the Canadian Forces.

To honour the occasion, a number of Canadian municipalities have simultaneously lit up a number of major national landmarks – including the CN Tower in Toronto as one noteworthy example – as both a commemorative show of support for Canada’s military and in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the highest number of landmarks simultaneously illuminated in a similar manner.

As part of the attempt, each monument is required to be filmed in a 10-minute time-lapse video to serve as verification for the effort. This attempt in Moose Jaw is captured in the first photograph as Murray Rimmer and John Trodd’s camera is shown during the filming of the City Hall verification video from the building's rooftop.

The municipality of Moose Jaw has joined several other communicates across Canada in the endeavour and individual homes and small businesses – including the Moose Jaw Express – have also joined the effort in a show of support.
