Parliament Hill, Ottawa

Sunday, 12th June 2005 by

Parliament Hill is the seat of power for the Government of Canada. The white dome to the north is covering the Library of Parliament which is currently being restored. The library was built in 1876 and is the only part of the parliament that survived a fire in 1916.

To the front of the building you can see the shadow cast by the Peace Tower, a memorial to those Canadians who died in World War I.
