1967 was a big year for Canada and Canadians. The country was 100 years old. Celebrations to mark the Centennial were held across the country -- not just the world's fair in Montreal, something we call Expo '67. One Centennial project saw a group of Inuit from Labrador -- known as the Moravian Eskimo Choir -- travel from Nain to St. John's. There were 14 members of the choir. This was their first visit to the island portion of the province. They performed at a number of venues in and around the city. A report about their visit was featured on the appropriately-named CBC Radio show "Centennial Diary."
