History[ edit ] Background and architecture[ edit ] As early as , Montreal Mayor Jean Drapeau sought to build a covered stadium in Montreal. In , soon after the National League granted Montreal an expansion franchise for , Drapeau wrote a letter promising that any prospective Montreal team would be playing in a covered stadium by However, even as powerful as he was, he did not have the power to make such a guarantee on his own authority.
Just as Charles Bronfman , who was slated to become the franchise’s first owner, was ready to walk away, Drapeau had his staffers draw up a proposal for a stadium. It was enough to persuade Bronfman to continue with the effort. It only came to light in An Olympic velodrome since converted to the Montreal Biodome , an indoor nature museum was situated at the base of the tower in a building similar in design to the swimming pool. The building was built as the main stadium for the Summer Olympic Games.
The stadium was host to various events including the opening and closing ceremonies , athletics , football finals, and the team jumping equestrian events. The Quebec provincial government finally lost patience with the delays and cost overruns in , and threw Taillibert off the project. Work slowed to a snail’s pace for a third of the year due to Montreal’s typically brutal winters.
As a result, the stadium and tower remained unfinished at the opening of the Olympic Games. Ultimately, it was only opened and closed 88 times. The funicular cabin ascends from base of the tower to upper deck in less than two minutes at a rate of 2.

Speed skating at the Winter Olympics Speed Skating started in At the Olympic Congress, the delegates agreed to include ice speed skating in the Olympics, after figure skating had featured in the Olympics.

From the outside sharks may appear quite primitive, but despite being an ancient group of animals they are actually highly sophisticated. The general anatomy of sharks is fairly consistent across the different species, and the fact that they have remained unchanged for so long underlines just how effective their anatomical make-up is. Unlike most fish that have just one gill, sharks boast five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and rely on a large oil filled liver for buoyancy as opposed to a gas-filled swim bladder.
Chondrichthyes have skeletons made up of cartilage rather than bone, and lack a swim bladder. This particular class of fish contains over species, including sharks, rays and skates. While this varies among different species, most sharks have this ability to some degree. Often there is just one layer of tesserae, but larger sharks such as the great white shark have three or more layers.
Artificial reefs[ edit ] The value of good surf in attracting surf tourism has prompted the construction of artificial reefs and sand bars.

I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death. Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy.
The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Have you reckon’d a thousand acres much? Have you practis’d so long to learn to read? Have you felt so proud to get at the meaning of poems?
