Canadian Tire Christmas Spirit Tree

Canadian Tire is powering the lights on a Christmas Tree in Union St railway station in Toronto, with the Christmas spirit expressed in Canadian social media. Every time a Christmas message, tweet, blog post, news story, or forum post is shared online, it illuminates the tree. As Canada’s Christmas spirit grows stronger and stronger, the Christmas Spirit Tree shines brighter and brighter. The campaign, online at, includes a live stream of the tree.
