Expo 67: A Virtual Experience online
at www.collectionscanada.ca


Montreal, November 18, 2002  -  The Library and Archives of Canada is launching Expo 67: A Virtual Experience, an Internet site marking the 35th anniversary of this international exhibition, which truly was Montrealís showcase on the world.

Created in collaboration with Archives de Montréal, this virtual exhibition will be launched today at 5 p.m. at the Nouveau Club Soda, 1225 Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Montreal, by the National Archivist of Canada, Ian E. Wilson. Well-known Québécois singers and composers Louise Forestier and Stéphane Venne will also attend the launch. Mr. Venneís musical composition Hey friend, say friend became the Expo theme song.

"Like many Montrealers, I have unforgettable memories of this significant event," said Louise Forestier. "Expo 67 not only opened the door for Québécois artists, but also provided a springboard to the international scene."

Ian E. Wilson, National Archivist of Canada, is proud to "unveil this virtual site which will allow many people to live or relive this great moment in Montrealís history, and enable future generations to discover it for themselves."

Like an enormous album of souvenirs, these virtual pages include over 600 digital images illustrating such things as the various pavilions on the Expo site, activities that took place and special guests who attended the event.
