St. Paul is home to the world’s first UFO landing pad, built as a centennial project in an effort to attract both tourists and Martians to the municipality. The pad consists of a raised platform with a map of Canada embossed on the back stop, consisting of stones provided by each province of Canada.

On June 3, 1967, Paul Hellyer, Minister of National Defence, flew in by helicopter to officially open the Pad. The pad was one of over 100 Centennial Projects organized by the town.

The sign beside the pad reads:

“The area under the World’s First UFO Landing Pad was designated international by the Town of St. Paul as a symbol of our faith that mankind will maintain the outer universe free from national wars and strife. That future travel in space will be safe for all intergalactic beings, all visitors from earth or otherwise are welcome to this territory and to the Town of St. Paul.”

Montréal Olympic Tower

Montreal Olympic Tower

When the world was due to converge on Montréal for the 1976 Summer Olympics, the city embarked upon the construction of a new stadium that was to have a unique observatory tower that would provide visitors with an incredible view of the Olympic area and the city in general.

However, it wasn’t until more than 10 years after the Olympic athletes left this Québec city that the Montréal Tower Observatory opened to the public. In actuality, it wasn’t really until during the building process itself that architects and planners decided to place the observatory, the exhibition hall and the reception hall on the 3 upper floors of the tower.
