Parliament remains Canadian heritage originator because as the seat of government it creates and decides laws for the whole country regarding what is a national historic site.
The buildings that compose the Parliament block in Ottawa are themselves a national heritage as are all individual legislatures in all ten provinces and territories because Canada will be 150 years old this year.
Today in Montreal they celebrated the 375 year anniversary which blends in with Canada’s 150 year anniversary and started off the festivities in Quebec early this morning with our PM Justin Trudeau and wife Sofie participating and being part of a host of dignitaries including Quebec Premier Philippe Cuilliard, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre launching it all.
Tonight another heritage site the famous 92-year-old Jacques Cartier Bridge has been lit up spectacularly, about CDN $40 millions worth, with zillions of lights delighting Montrealers with a light show depicting the city’s famed history.
