    THE PEOPLE OF CANADA PAY HOMAGE TO CANADA ON THE OCCASION OF HER 100TH BIRTHDAY. AND THE PEOPLE OF CANADA PAY HOMAGE TO THE GROUP OF CANADIANS WHO HAVE PERFORMED THIS MIRACLE OF EXPO 67

    Background: THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT PAVILION -- The Katimavik which dominates the Canadian Government Pavilion rises 109' above water. The inverted pyramid contains representations of time, navigation, nature and man. The promenade is reached by stairs and for the disabled visitor there is a special inclined elevator.

    Canada's sixty-foot People Tree is of autumnal coloured transparent leaves bearing hundreds of photos of Canadians at work and at play.

    Every noon hour members of the 4th Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Regiment, wearing the uniforms of their original regiment, fire a rebuilt 1870 model cannon of the type used during the North West Rebellion.

    The Art Centre, the Court of Sculpture, the browsing Library provide relaxation and a rest from pounding the pavement.

    In a "little sea" outside the Pavilion, against a background of the coast of Labrador there are working models of Canada's least Guard ships. An icebreaker lacks a way through styrofoam "ice" to assist cargo vessel out of an ice jam. A buoy-laying vessel. (which double-duties ??? icebreaker) places a buoy and retrieves it. A scaled down version of a ??? lighthouse is complete with davit and boat, revolving light, foghorn, revolving antennas, ladders, railing, windows and helicopter.

    In a lagoon is UKI, the firm spitting sea-lobster, a sculpture of Gerald Gladstone.

    The 18' geological map is a mosaic formed with rocks from each different region of Canada.

    The soapstone carvings and the wall matches and murals are in the Tondra Restaurant of the Canadian Pavilion. Two Eskimo carvers from Cape Dorset began work last September on 3,000 square foot of wall in the restaurant. They have shown the history of the Eskimo people, their way of life and their legends and were working in a medical ??? new to them. Working on white plaster walls overlaid with a 2" layer of soft grey plaster, they cut through the grey and the white plaster underneath provided the outlines of their skeleton. The mural of Cape Dorset contains every building standing in that northern community.

    THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO PAVILION -- The minirail runs through this cluster of tents. The Pavilion is in a rustic setting of granite rocks and evergreens. Inside life size robots (dressed in the costume of their role --) discuss career opportunities for young people -- science, sports, the arts and business. The individual displays in the Pavilion depict life and industry in the province. It has an excellent restaurant and a 50-seater theatre.

    INDIANS OF CANADA PAVILION -- This building, in a very serene setting, is fashioned in the form of a tepee 100 feet tall. In the patio is a 65' totem pole, a beautiful 8-ton carving. In the reception area is a 9' welcome figure. Similar carvings once stood facing he sea in front of the longhouses on big houses and welcomed those who might paddle by.

    The attractive Indian hostesses act as guides through the exhibits ??? ??? artifacts of the 6 major Indian cultural groups in Canada (modes of ??? ??? ???, clothing, food, religious symbols.) The Celestial Bear acted ??? ??? between the Great Spirit and the Indian and as well acted as a ??? ??? Indian. The symbolic fire has a background of tape music and ??? ??? ??? people.

    ??? ??? ??? love of the land is foremost in the Pavilion, but ??? ??? ??? struggle the Indian people have experienced over the ??? ??? ??? historical battles; treaties are dealt with; the ac-??? ??? ??? Indian in coping with economic problems and the special ??? ??? ??? which beset him (as compared to the non-Indian) ??? ??? ??? revealed.

    ??? ??? ???, a genuine statement by the Indian people, has be-??? ??? ??? which the Indian-Canadians can speak to other Cana-??? ??? ??? at large.

    THE ATLANTIC PROVINCES PAVILION -- Canada's Atlantic Provinces, New Brunswick Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island have a joint Pavilion which features marine exhibits and a 47-foot schooner, the Atlantica, which is under construction in commemoration of the contribution the 2-masted schooner has made to the economics of the Atlantic Provinces for more than 200 years. Migrations, first inhabitants, folklore, local myths, heroes, industrial developments all have their place at the Pavilion and to top it off they have provided EXPO-goers with a super seafood restaurant.

    THE WESTERN PROVINCES PAVILION -- Canada's four Western Provinces ??? Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, also have a joint pavilion at EXPO. The rough-hews cedar-shake roof slopes gradually to an open, even to 40' above street level and from which live western trees protrude, and the ??? ??? to reflect the topography of the West: the even prairies of ??? and ??? Saskatchewan; the foothills and mountains of Alberta; the mountains the sharp drop to the sea of British Columbia.

    Temperature, sound, sight and small enliven the exhibits of a mine, forestry and forest products (everyone will remember the fully loaded logging truck in its natural setting in a West Coast rain forest with 10 or so 60 foot overgrounds, transported from B.C.); the wheat fields of Saskatchewan; manufacturing, fishing, petroleum and potash exhibits and other underground wealth.

    THE YUKON PAVILION -- the land of the midnight sun, the land of adventure, has the smallest Pavilion at Expo which represents a population of 14,500 comprising the Yukon Territory. The colourful history of the Yukon Territory occupies a special niche in the history of Canada. The territory was first a fur trading area in the middle of the 17th Century; then it was invaded by adventurers in quest of gold; their departure returned the land to the original settlers. The Alaska Highway construction swelled the population. When that was complete most of the crews went home. The population has bee rising and falling for many many years. Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon is an important communications centre. 180 miles northwest of Whitehorse is Canada's most westerly full-time farming enterprise. Many opportunities await the young and the hardy.

    The exhibits include a gold nugget, handcrafts and wild animal trophies.

    THE PAVILION OF THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC is striking -- its sloping glass walls reflecting the sky, the water and the surrounding pavilions.

    Quebec's participation at EXPO relates to Quebec territory, history and future.

    Throughout, the exhibit returns to the people who accepted the challenge of the past and seek prosperity in the future.

    THE SUN LIFE CENTENARY CARILLON - Levis Tower, Ile Ste-Helene, EXPO 67. (the largest ever constructed -- has 671 bells and is electro-mechanical).

    Levis Tower is 96' high and is on the highest point of land on the EXPO site.

    The Carillon known as the "Voice of Expo" opens and closes the Exhibition each day - and as well tolls the hour.

    Resident carillonneur, Lucien Hotu (and other well known musicians) delight EXPO goers with special concerts each day. The carillon is played from a glass enclosed, two storey structure nearby. Passersby are afforded a view of the musician. The natural setting of trees and parkland terrain has been preserved and provide EXPO visitors with a quiet haven in the midst of the fair.

    The console has 2 manual keyboards and a foot pedalboard controlling miniature hammers which strike small tuned metal bars. The resultant tones are amplified thousands of times to give the effects of bells of any weight from a few pounds to tons. The sound is projected through the stentors or amplifiers on top of the Tower.

    All types of music are readily adaptable. Concerts are as varied as the countries participating at the fabulous fair, and as beautiful as the many exotic pieces on display.
