WWII - IT'S HISTORY
As a young boy, growing up on a military base in Canada, the second world war was a central theme of our daily lives. My father fought in the Canadian and served under the British navies in he Atlantic, Mediterranean and Indian Oceans. The highlight of Saturday afternoons was going to the base cinema and watching the weekly film which more often then not was a movie about some aspect of World War II. We played at war and most of the time the setting was some pivotal battle from WW II.
We continue the story of John Knox, the British officer who wrote of his experiences in North America during the Seven Years War. This month he describes the siege and Capture of Louisbourg by Amherst and Wolf. This was the first step in defeating the French in North America and bringing down their empire. Knox and Louisbourg
OTTAWA - PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS
The Parliament buildings in Ottawa have been not only the centre of our Federal Government, but also the representation of our national identity in many ways. From those great Canada day celebrations to the parading guard, to the hosting of watershed events such as the signing of our new constitution by the Queen, Parliament Hill is the heartbeat of the nation and the buildings are a spectacular fusion of old and new, traditional, and evolving and a continuity of national conciseness. Take tour of our photos of the buildings and the hill. Photo Journey
