 Canadian Pacifiquel Pavilion

Visitors to the Canadian Pacific Cominco Pavilion on ile Notre-Dame will see a completely new dimension in the art of motion pictures, Francis Thompson and Alexander Hammid, who produced an outstanding award-winning film for the New York World's Fair, have used a new Multi-Camera film technique and spent 18 months traveling across Canada to produce a charmingly humorous film on Canadian youth against a background of some of the country's most beautiful scenery. The Viewers doesn't just see the film, he will participate in it in an exciting and unusual manner.

After the film show, lasting approxximately 20 minutes, visitors visit the "5+1" exhibit building and encounter a completely different and fascinating experience. Here, through actual participation, visitors have fun learning things about the five senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. Finally, in the "5+1" area the theme Man and his World is related to the words of the two sponsoring companies, Canadian Pacific, the world's most complete transportation system, and Cominco Ltd, a Canadian mining, metal and chemical company with world-wide operations.
