It’s holiday time in Canada.
This week in French speaking Quebec, it’s a time of celebration with the Fete Nationale du Quebec (formerly known as Fete St. Jean Baptiste.
Then a week later on July 1 Canada observes its 140 th birthday with Canada Day (formerly known as Dominion Day).
Historian and musicologist Bruno Paul Stenson joins us from Montreal to share some insight about the pulse of Canada on this national birthday.
Bruno also owns what probably is the largest collection of memorabilia from Expo ’67. On this 40th anniversary of the Expo and of Canada’s centennial, we also talk to Bruno about his collection, and just what that magical year was all about.
By the way, one of the items in his collection is a can of Expo 67 air.
