June 15, 2013 allowed former PM Steven Harper a political conversation with Canadians living in Montreal’s West Island about his federal Conservative government.
Harper appeared very happy with the large turnout of Conservative party support during his stopover in Montreal talking about his government programs for Canadians, and answering multitude of questions from the crowd.
It was a warm sunny Saturday and this was a diehard Conservative event by invitation only to see the Prime Minister of Canada speak, I was lucky to get an invite through my connections in the Conservative party.
This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”CONVERSATION”.
Dialogue or conversation with another is as old as mankind certainly here on Earth perhaps, going back to the Garden of Eden, when the Almighty created everything. As we all know an exchange between God and humans was followed by another of counter opinions by the serpent and the humans and the rest is history.
A recent bus trip to Ottawa provided me an opportunity to capture these images which show a different type of dialogue, one of architecture. Here parts are brought together and speak as a marvel of Canadian architectural history and also of Canadian heritage. The Peace Tower is the focal point in Ottawa with its giant Gothic style mechanical clocks that adorn it creating a unique dialogue. The Tower just would not be the same without its clocks and they would be just several large, old, out-of-fashion, mechanical clocks without a purpose.
