Canada 150 Signs Popping Up Across the Maritimes

The countdown to Canada's 150th birthday has been well underway for a few months, and with only a couple weeks before July 1, finishing touches are being put on what could be some of the biggest Canada Day events ever seen.

A 3D Canada 150 sign has been installed in Fredericton, as well as down by the waterfront in Halifax and in Charlottetown at the Confederation Centre.

“It’s very eye-catching. I really like it,” says one Fredericton resident.

“It is a nice monument, a nice mark to take a picture and to visit,” says another.

The monument will remain in place for the rest of the year. A total of 19 Canadian cities are getting the sign, with the goal of building excitement to Canada Day 2017.

“It’s getting great attention,” says Fredericton Mayor Mike O’Brien. “People can't go by it without taking a picture of it – proud of the sign, proud of the country.”

Planning has been underway all around the region for nearly a year already.

“We knew there was a lot of extra funding available, and just where it is Canada 150 we wanted to make sure it was extra special,” Wentzell says.
