Canada @150

We always mention that time goes by very fast. A few days ago starting the New Year, watching the fireworks in Ottawa, while being aware that Canada is turning 150.

Canada Pavillion

It hit The Colonel that he was around when Canada turned 100 and Expo 67. Agreed you have to be of a certain age to have attended Expo 67 in Montreal.

First blush it was 50 years ago, 2 generations, where did the time go?

By 2017 standards its ancient history...by human standards it was 50 years ago when Canada turned 100.

By car perspectives it was the middle of the muscle and pony car era, a 427 Corvette coupe with sidepipes, and 67 Camaro were new cars back then...reflect on this for just a moment.

While Boomers were coming of age.

The Vietnam war was going full swing.

The Cold War was enduring.

Woodstock was still a couple of years in the future.

As we progress this year we will make additional references to "Canada @150".
