Liverpool Receiving A Connection To John Lennon

It's the only municipality in Canada invited to take part this year -- Liverpool is capitalizing on its relations with Liverpool - England and is receiving the commemorative White Feather Candle from the John Lennon White Feather Foundation.
Spokesperson Phaedra Charlton-Huskins tells us the candle will be lit during the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony on the 27th -- but -- it won't be just a public official lighting the candle -- it will be the winner of an essay contest for the kids.
She says a picture will be taken during the ceremony and sent to the Foundation in England where it will be featured with other photos of similar ceremonies around the world.
The foundation was started by Julian Lennon in honor of his father to promote environmental and humanitarian issues
