Incredible photos show how far Canada has come

Wednesday, July 1st 2020, 5:59 am - Canada keeps getting better and better.

Canada has evolved over the past century-and-a-half, and the best way to visualize that growth is through photos.

In honour of Canada Day, we went digging through the archives to find past and present photos of some of Canada's cities.

We searched every major city in Canada for this article, so if your city isn't here, it doesn't mean we forgot about you! We simply couldn't find a "before" and "after" taken in similar locations.

These changes will amaze you.
