The Montreal Biodome is a facility located in Montreal that allows visitors to walk through replicas of four ecosystems found in the Americas. The building was originally constructed for the 1976 Olympic Games as a velodrome.
In 1976 the Olympic games were held in Montreal, Canada. This affected Canadians because it was a major moral booster. The games got people's minds off what was happening in Europe and they made people happy. Also in 1988 the games were held in Calgary.
