Event
    (April 28, 1967-1968)
    World's Fair held in Montreal, Canada
    50,000,000 visitors
    100 pavilions
    All the exhibits were witten in English and French.
    The USSR also asked for a World's Fair for 1967. The international committee voted 16-14 in favor of the U.S.S.R. over Canada.
    The Canadian Fair of 1967 was originally scheduled to be built in Toronto.
    Bird watchers were upset that the ring-billed gulls would lose their nesting area.
    It was purchased by the U.S. based Six Flags Amusement Parks.
    The theme of the fair was 'Man and His World.'
    After the successful World's Fair in Brussels, Canada began lobbying for the 1967 World's Fair (1958).
    It marked the 100th anniversary of Canada.
    The U.S. Pavilion became the Biosphere.
    The Habitat 67 exhibition became a private residence.
    Although the USSR has the rights to the 1967 World's Fair, they ran into economic problems and gave the rights to Canada.
    Although scheduled to run one year, it re-opened in 1968 as 'Man and His World.'
    It continued as a summer amusement park through 1981.
    It is now a public park, called Parc Jean-Drapeau, which includes a Six Flags amusement park, biosphere and casino.
    Baseball's first Canadian team, the Montreal Expos, was named in it's honor.
