Parliament Hill in Ottawa

Parliament Hill, Ottawa

The Center Block or the main building of the Parliament Building complex with the distinctive Peace Tower. This picture was taken during my first visit to Ottawa in 2002.
Another picture of the main Parliament Building. This houses the chambers of the House of Commons and the what I think is irrelevant Canadian Senate.
This one I took on my recent visit to Ottawa this year (2005). Notice that the dome of the main building is being repaired.

Me in Ottawa in October 2002.
And me several pounds heavier in 2005.
Statue of Terry Fox, one of the most beloved Canadians of modern times. He lost his leg to cancer and became famous for trying to run across continental Canada in his artificial leg to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. After 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 miles), Terry was forced to stop running outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario because cancer had appeared in his lungs. He died months later at the age of 22 but his legacy lives on in the annual Terry Fox Run around the world that has raised more than $360 million todate.
One of the buildings in front of Parliament Building along Wellington St.
The East Block of the Parliament Buildings. Inside are the restored offices of Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald and other early statesmen.
Me with the Ottawa River and the National Gallery in the background.
