    Probably the only bunker of anywhere near this size in the Western Hemisphere that is open to the general public. 4 levels, 350 feet square, plus an enormous bank vault intended to house the gold reserves of the Bank of Canada. Check out the broadcast studio, with vintage McCurdy consoles in pristine, unused condition that were narrowly rescued from being scrapped.
