August 21, 1967:

Following a three-week exhibition in Toronto at four different venues, Canada's Confederation Train departs at the end of the final day of display at Downsview. The train was exhibited at Kingston for four days and then moved on to Montreal, where a mob of demonstrating separatists stormed the train, vandalizing the exterior with paint while Montreal police passively observed from the sidelines.
