The Cold War will be brought to life at Fort Road Hill in Colwood this week with an exhibit in the fortress plotting room from March 1 to 4.

This weekend volunteers and Parks Canada staff will be wearing period uniforms and living in the bunker, and will be giving talks to visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the history of the fort during the Cold War era.

See Fort Rodd Hill's website for more information.
