Canadian Parliament

This is in Ottawa Ontario, Canada at the Parliament. These are pictures inside and out of the parliament. The statues are outside around it. The carving is at the entrance of the building. Construction began in 1859, when new buildings were needed to house the government of the Province of Canada (now Ontario and Quebec). When Canada became an independent country in 1867, the buildings became the seat of the new federal Parliament. There are three Parliament Buildings: Centre Block (which is home to the Senate and the House of Commons) and the East and West Blocks (which house parliamentarians’ offices). The East and West Blocks are still standing, but the original Centre Block was destroyed by fire in 1916. The only part of the building to survive was the Library. The current Centre Block was built from 1916 to 1920.
