It’s the last three days of June 1867, the days right before Canada officially becomes a country. But everyone in London Ontario is too busy to notice the start of their new nation. The recently defeated, short tempered, Mayor Frank Cornish is ready to start a fight with anyone who crosses his path. Everyone is on the lookout for the notorious window peeper Slippery Jack. The Fenians are planning a surprise attack. The new Mayor Frank Smith is more concerned with vegetable produce than politics. And Tully and Belinda just want to be in love!

1967 was a watermark year for Canada. This colourful theatrical collage presents some of the bright, fiery and passionate individuals of Canada 67. Meet federal cabinet minister Judy LaMarsh buried to her waist in a snowdrift. Follow a man whose dream was to drive a sled-dog team from the Northwest Territories all the way to Edmonton. Experience the anger of controversial FLQ member Pierre Vallières. This was the year that set Canada’s trajectory for the next fifty years.
