 MA's Stamp Album - Canada - 1966
Canada's first Highway Safety Stamp, one of a few devoted to this subject in the world, has been selected as a vehicle for another first in the country's philatelic issues.
The historical event recalled by this stamp was convened in England on the 4th December 1866 to negotiate final details for the establishment of the new Dominion and to persuade the British Government to enact necessary legislation to permit founding of the fledgling nation.
For her part, Canada has followed a route of power reactor development that is uniquely different from the major programs in most other nuclear advanced countries; a system based on the use of natural uranium fuel, and heavy water as a moderator and coolant.

Canada's participation in the Manhattan project was critical since the country was one of only two places outside Nazi-controlled Europe -- the other was the Belgian Congo -- with known natural deposits of uranium.
Secretly, however, Canada continued to provide plutonium from Chalk River and uranium to Britain and the United States to fuel their weapons programs, according to author Gordon Edwards in the book, Canada and the Nuclear Arms Race.
Though Canada was one of the first countries to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in July 1968, the country has come under fire for providing India with the reactor India used to produce the plutonium that fueled its first nuclear bomb explosion in 1974.

 Chrysler of Canada - the history and the cars
Canada's DeSoto-Dodge dealers were granted Chrysler franchises as compensation, much as DeSoto-Plymouth dealers were in the U. This marketing situation continues in Canada to this day, as witnessed by the marketing of the "Chrysler Intrepid" by Canadian Dodge-Chrysler and Plymouth-Chrysler dealers.
Chrysler Canada hung on to the direct-drive (instead of reduction-gear) starter for the six until 1967 or 1968.
Unlike Canada's Dodge, however, it used the full Plymouth body, including the front fenders, except for the grille which was full of the usual DeSoto teeth.

When we also account for entry conditions, our results suggest Canada's immigrants of the late 1990s would otherwise have enjoyed entry earnings equal to or higher than their counterparts of the 1960s.
