48th Highlanders of CanadaThe 48th Highlanders of Canada is a Canadian Militia (i.e., part-time Army reserve) infantry regiment based in Toronto.
It was founded in 1891 and has served in every major conflict since.
The regiment's pipes and drums have played at every Toronto Maple Leafs home opening game at both Maple Leaf Gardens and the Air Canada Centre. The band was requested by Conn Smythe, who had been a major in the First World War, to play at the opening of the new Maple Leaf Gardens on November 12, 1931.
