DND display @ 2006 CNE

My wife and I made the error of attending the Canadian National Exhibition on its busiest day (Labour Day).  After seeing the horrendous lineup for the 511 Exhibition streetcar at Spadina station, we decided to backtrack to Ossington Station and take the 63 Ossington to its southernmost terminus at Strachan Avenue below King Street West.  From there it is a relatively short walk to the Princes’ Gates and a fun-filled half-hour lineup to get tickets.

All the pre-entry nonsense aside, there was a pretty good display of Department of National Defence hardware west of the Automotive Building.  Brooks already covered the essentials here at The Torch on the 25th, my follow-up is just for the sake of providing some eye-candy.
