EXPO67 MISSION IMPOSSIBLE invites us to relive the incredible adventure of the men behind Man and His World. Over time, tongues have loosened and the full story can now emerge, just like Notre-Dame Island out of the waters of the St. Lawrence. It’s a fascinating and inspiring history lesson for younger generations today and in the future. The story of Expo 67 makes just about anything seem possible . . .
Constructed like a grand epic, Expo67: Mission Impossible is a true thriller starring the characters who were the Mad Men of Montreal. The organizers had only 1,628 days to build an island, 128 pavilions, three bridges and trains capable of transporting tens of millions of visitors. A computer modeling team at the Stanford Research Institute predicted failure. The first organizing committee resigned. Speculators started getting edgy. Ottawa and Quebec City were reluctant to cough up the cash for a one-time event that would cost more than all the bridges of Montreal.
