Bee BS: Montreal 60's Counterculture Question (249* d) RE: BS: Montreal 60's Counterculture Question 16 Oct 08


Keep talkin' fellas - this is interesting history that i wasn't really part of. Expo 67! What a wake up that was for a lot of rural teenagers who'd never seen much past the end of their own dirt road!

A group of local churches fund-raised to send 67 of us to Montreal for a week; hired a train car, put us up on the floor of a great big Montreal church...living in the balmy October of Cape Breton, we none of us had winter gear with us, and the Montreal church people had to loan us sweaters and coats, it got so cold.

We had glimpses of the local scene as we wandered through the pavilions and the fair. I remember talking with young men who seemed as exotic to me as any of the foriegn exhibits, a couple of them invited me to come away with them. I was sixteen and couldn't imagine being so bold and bad.
