60's design in Canada

The Canadian Museum of Civilization has just launched a retrospective of Canadian Design in the 1960's. Featured are such Canuck icons as Northern Telecom's Contempra phone, the Thermos jug, and the Ball B-Q. I have some quibble with the presentation of the new exhibition on the museum's website: it takes three clicks to actually get to a picture of 60's design from the museum's splash page, and five to get to more than one picture.

Compare that to the National Gallery's exhibition on 60's art, which is featured on the first page of content.

The CBC's website has plenty of clips dealing with 60's cluture, including this one on a revolutonary new product for increasingly busy housewives: ready-to-eat turkey roll.
