The 1970s, the disco era, produced many pop celebrities - in music, movies and television. Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot became popular Canadian musicians, for example. And, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, in the famous musical GREASE, created a dance craze which swept the world.

This was the decade that the Canadian government under Prime Minister Trudeau passed the War Measures Act, a very controversial act that meant that in time of war or national distress, the rights of citizens could be suspended. Also during this time, women were increasingly starting to work outside of the home. It was still safe to hitchhike across the country.

The 70s also brought new forms of pop culture - musical poems, disco clothing and an excessive use of jewellery. The 70s decade was very distinctive from other ones, so take a look around and experience the disco decade.
