And I won't waste much time on the mind-bending activities that folks were getting into. In fact, some of it was a little too fast for me, but it did change our lives. I guess I sped up as a result.

    I would sum up that era as "liberal".....
    It may be that experiencing the sixties in Canada was different than experiencing it in the US. Did you need to deal with the possibility of being drafted into the Viet Nam War? You may have met some emigres who joined you as a result of their particular approach to dealing with that issue. I joined the Coast Guard on the advice of my late brother who was an army helicopter pilot in Viet Nam.

    The sixties may have seemed "liberal" to you. That seems a strange way of describing total social upheaval marked by political assassinations, riots and destruction at home and abroad. It may be our different angles of perception.
