To keep Remembrance Day relevant for younger generations, Home Equity Bank partnered with The Royal Canadian Legion to recruit four veterans (all over 90 years of age) to form the world's oldest Esports team; Team Legion. Video game influencers on Twitch, YouTube and Facebook Live joined them on virtual battlefields not to play, but to lay down their controllers, hear their stories and honour their service.
