B-P, as he became familiarly known, founded Boy Scouts in 1907 and Girl Guides in 1910. The movements grew spectacularly and have touched the lives of over 300 million throughout the world. At our investiture we undertake to love and serve God and country and to develop ourselves fully so that we can help others at all times. For over forty years, Scouts Canada of the Greater Toronto Council has operated a free wheelchair service for those who cannot easily get around the EX. Many thousands of visitors appreciate the help provided by the youth and adults of this volunteer Service Corps.

The Canadian International Air Show originated in 1946 when the National Aeronautical Association of Canada attracted overflow crowds to a show at De Havilland Airport in Downsview. Staged annually thereafter, the air show moved to Exhibition Place in 1949 and became a regular feature of the Canadian National Exhibition in 1956. Here it developed into a world class exhibition featuring diverse types of aircraft, precision and stunt flying, and aeronautical technology.

Dedicated August 18, 1977, in the twenty-fifth year of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the Honourable Pauline M. McGibbon, Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario.
Staged by the Industrial Exhibition Association of Toronto, it offered medals and prize money to encourage innovation and improvements in agriculture, manufacturing and the arts. The fair quickly became a popular attraction and a boon to the local economy. A national event since 1912, the CNE continues to showcase Canadian creativity and achievement.

With additions made in 1926, the complex ranked as the largest exhibition space under one roof in the world. Its towers and classical detailing complemented the Beaux Arts Buildings at the west end of the exhibition grounds. During the Second World War, the Coliseum served as a recruitment centre, known as Manning Depot Number One, for the Royal Canadian Air Force. It has hosted a wide range of entertainment and sporting events and has served as a showplace for livestock and other farm products. Today, the Coliseum is part of the Metropolitan Toronto’s National Trade Centre, the largest trade and consumer facility in Canada.
Unveiled by HRH Prince Philip, K.G., K.T., The Duke of Edinburgh.
