      What happens when you get a group of people to stand in a numerical formation, and fly a drone above them? You get one helluva shot. 

      Students, staff, and faculty at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) came together to wish Canada a very happy 150th, by strategically forming a human “150”. 

      A drone was flown above the group, and the outcome was a very impressive photo that celebrates our country’s big birthday.

      “It was a wonderful opportunity to see everyone across the university come together and celebrate what Canada means to them,” said Joanne Saunders, executive director of marketing and recruitment, in a press statement. “KPU is an extremely diverse and multicultural university and that’s something we love to celebrate.”

      For those who want to see the behind-the-scenes of this creative activity, photos and video footage captured from the drone will be posted to the KPU website and social media channels on Canada Day (July 1).

      Vancouverites will be wishing our country a happy 150th in plenty of ways. Local events include joining the Chasing Sunrise hike at Mount Seymour, and/or attending one of the many Canada Day events around town.

      How will you celebrate Canada 150?
