Team Canada's athletes — particularly its female Olympians — have been kicking butt at the 2020 Olympics while living it up in Tokyo's Olympic Village since the start of the Games on July 23, and they've been giving us all a glimpse of their experience on social media.
Canada's Olympians have explored Tokyo's scenery, spent long hours in the Village's sports complexes and have represented Canada on a global scale, earning two gold medals so far.
Rimouski's Maude Charron, a weightlifter who won one of Canada's two Olympic golds, brought a little slice of home to her Olympic Village room.
After arriving in Tokyo, fellow Montreal fencer Maximilien Van Haaster explored the architecture of Tokyo's Olympic Village, bringing his Instagram followers along the way. Meanwhile, Montreal-based sailer Oliver Bone gave his followers a behind-the-scenes look at his boat's preparation for the Olympic Games.
Though he's not from Quebec — let alone Canadian — Team USA rugby player Cody Melphy made a TikTok of the Olympic Village that's too good not to share.
Ah, Expo 67. In my opinion, this event - which went down in the city exactly 50 years ago, BTW - was pretty much a shining star in the history of Montreal, and in Canada as a whole, if we're being honest.
Why? Well, think about it. Many of the things built for and featured in Expo 67 are still huge parts of our lives in Montreal to this day. The Biosphere? La Ronde? Habitat 67? Parc Jean-Drapeau? All thanks to Expo 67. (Sidenote: I guess that also means Osheaga and Ile Soniq are all thanks to Expo 67, too!)
And even though a lot of us weren't even alive when this event went down, we all still kind of know about it. I mean, for good reason: Expo 67 was seriously cool. It had it all. Live music (The Supremes played live, guys), an amusement park (looking at you, La Ronde), entertainment, celebrities, IMAX films, expositions, and a whole lot more!
Just like those of us who weren't there for sure want to experience the awesomeness of Expo 67 for the first time, those of us who were there highkey wish to relive every single moment of this epic event.
Featuring giant, immersive screens that'll take you back fifty years to vibe and atmosphere of Montreal's Expo 67, this event relives the best moments of the event - in a way that can only happen in 2017.
For example, you can take a minute walk through Expo 67, listen to the music of the '60s, and check out the USSR Pavillion, the Monorail, the American Pavillion, Habitat 67 and more, all without ever having to leave Place Des Arts thanks to Karine Lanoie-Brien and her team.
