A "public" marriage proposal goes digital at the Montreal Eaton Centre

MONTREAL, Aug. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Using many (digital) signs of affection, local Toronto man Frank Bernardo "popped the question" to his girlfriend Alison Copeland on Pattison Onestop's advertising screens at the Montreal Eaton Centre on Saturday August 18th.
