Date Location: There is no date on the map. There is a code on the rear page of "B7/5." The Minister of Tourism and Information - Fern Guidon, who's name is in the map, held that position from March 1st, 1971 until February 2, 1972. Based on these dates and the fact that he held the post for 10 months in 1971 and only 30 days in 1972 - it is assumed that this is a 1971 edition of the map.

Note: Thanks to Daina Kalnins for her donation of this map to the web site. Thank you.
The map featured on this page was donated to this site by Daina Kalnins. The map, prior to photoshopping, had a stamp from George Nixon on the cover. Mr. Nixon was an elected member of the Ontario Provincial Legislature from October 21st, 1971 until August 11, 1975. He was also the father of Daina's best friend and this map held special memories for her. Connections such as these, give the collecting of maps a personal perspective and as such, I would like to thank Daina for parting with this map so it could be included on this site.
