Parliament in Ottawa was build around 1927, in more or less Gottic style. Original burned in 1916. It was just renovated. RCMP was investigating (2011) the $9-million contract for Parliament Hill renovation (bribes).
BUT...It really looks good, even small details, bricks and stones are cleaned, mortar fixed. Bribes well spent! ;-)
The recent attack on Parliament building let many Canadians know, that we are not isolated and exempt for terrorist hatred. Extremism of any kind does not suit Canadian way of life and will not be tolerated. I am saddened by the senseless death of the soldiers , but it is heartwarming to see the reaction of many ordinary Canadians.
