The Portraits of Honour mural is coming to Halifax.

A hand-painted mural of the 156 Canadian Forces' members who've lost their lives as part of the Afghan mission will begin a cross-Canada journey today.

The Portraits of Honour mural created by artist Dave Sopha over the past two-and-a-half years will be unveiled in Trenton, Ontario, just hours before the latest soldier to die in Afghanistan is to arrive home.

The cross-country tour of Sopha's mural aims to collect 1.5 million dollars for the Military Family fund. It will make its way to Halifax this fall.
