Kim Campbell on Brentwood Float?

Could the blonde young woman on this float advertising Brentwood Towne Centre shortly after its opening in the early 1960s be Canada’s 19th Prime Minister, Kim Campbell? I think her age would be roughly right (she was born in 1947), and the resemblance is certainly remarkable. Perhaps one of her friends or she herself would care to comment as to whether this is an image of an early Kim?

If you are interested in some of the history of Brentwood, this is a good place to start.

    I tweeted this to @AKimCampbell. I worked for her years ago. We shall see if she / her twitter person responds.

  2. A resemblance perhaps, but I don’t think its her. Good fun though.
