Expo 67 Montreal One of the most successful world's fairs ever held was Expo '67 in Montreal. It happened to coincide with Canada's centennial year. The fair was held on two artificial islands built in the St. Lawrence River. The islands were created using the dirt excavated from Montreal's subway construction. Expo was the place to be that summer!

I don't know why Pierre Trudeau is featured in this video. He didn't become Canada's prime minister until 1968.

What beautiful country, was that a castle up in the mountains?

The 'castle' you referred to is actually a famous ski lodge near Japser, Alberta.

Wow, is all I can say!

It's the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel near Jasper National Park. (I've never been anywhere near there. I live about 2,000 miles from Alberta.)

The Banff Springs Hotel is, of course, in Banff National Park, not Jasper National Park.

However, I think the picture is of Chateau Lake Louise, another Canadian Pacific Railway's hotel, which is also in Banff National Park.

I think Milligan is right. Thanks for the correction. I'm a little bit embarrassed by my error.

Ah! Those were the days!
How proud we all were to be CANADIAN!
Today, things have changed. We are more selfish and centered.
Pity.

Ed Sullivan was so impressed by Expo '67 that he taped some segments of his variety show there.
