Canada's Parliament Buildings

Three beautiful gothic buildings loom over the Ottawa River just below the historic Chaudiere Falls. They are the seat of Canada's federal government, visited by thousands of people each year. Canada's Parliment Buildings, filled with heraldry and history, instill pride in our country and give visitors a deep sense of being Canadian.Constructed in controversy, and steeped in decades of political lore, the Parliment Buldings have been the stage for the evolution of Canada from a small colony to one of the great nations of the world. This fascinating book takes you behind the scenes of Parliament Hill, examines the architecture, heraldry, and history of the buildings, and gives readers an understanding of the important role of Parliament in our society. Profusely illustrated with contemporary and historic photographs, this beautiful book belongs on the shelf of everyone who has toured the Parliment Buildings. It will also appeal to those interested in Canadian history and politics.
