CBC Archives: The Monarchy in Canada - Rare Footage

This refreshing approach to Canada's oldest institution has been replicated by Canadian instiutions in numerous other areas of Canadian life. Most recently, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has created an on-line archive of royal visits to Canada.

It is accessible via this link:  CBC DIGITAL ARCHIVES - THE MONARCHY:
