The year was 1982. Pierre Trudeau was prime minister, the Jays played at Exhibition Stadium, Vancouver's False Creek was an industrial wasteland and a film called O Canada! was the star attraction of the Canada Pavilion at the new Epcot Center at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Seven years after former Canadian Tourism Commission president Jim Watson launched a campaign to have the Disney-made film updated, it seems a new version of O Canada! will debut Aug. 25 -- with help from some high-profile Canadians: Canadian Idol winner Eva Avila of Ottawa and, Disney buffs say, comedian Martin Short.

john peck's avatar That film really was out of date. Nice to see the park modernizing some of the old showcases attractions.

Now if only they built an Oktoberfest style attraction for Germany and built some crazy flat rides...of course that wouldn't happen, but it's nice to think about.
