Cornwall celebrated Canada’s 100th Birthday

With the Canada 150 celebrations taking place throughout this year, it seems like a good opportunity to look back on some of the ways we celebrated the milestone 50 years ago.

Canada’s First Bank, the Bank of Montreal, was also celebrating a milestone then, just as it is this year. Another flashback – the Texaco station behind the float.

My how some things have changed. The paper mill, although then owned by Domtar, was still under the Howard Smith brand locally at the time.

Cornwall had many more trees lining its streets in years past. Who recognizes the parade route?

Lacrosse – part of our local and national heritage.
