Parliament Buildings, Ottawa

This is one of the photos of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.  We did see the scaffolding set up for repairs to other buildings.  Since then we have noticed a big stink about the contracts and work being done on the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.  There seems to be any number of construction companies going bankrupt.  Its entirely weird.  There is suspicion of mob-related problems in the industry.    All the scaffolding aside, we had a good visit to the buildings.  The Peace Tower tour was interesting and there is a great view.
I have been doing a bit of work on my old page and have uploaded the 'under construction' page for our trip to the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Rideau Canal.  I have done a few revisions on my Links page, also.
There has been a few very nasty news items recently.  The horror of Russel Williams in Ottawa, and our very own teenage kids in Victoria who pleaded guilty to the rape and burning of the body of their victim, who shall go nameless.  These two vicious animals were sentenced in juvenile court and will be eligible for parole in less than 5 years.  What's wrong with this picture??  One of the kids who helped to drown Reena Virk is already out on the streets, again.  Less than 10 years for the vicious attack.  What is wrong with our justice system?  Why can't we correct it???

Canada is beginning to sound like the US. If we ignore evil, it isn't really there and cannot harm us.
