The Parliamentary library

One of the highlights of our class trips to Ottawa is always our visit to Parliament. For the last several years, though, our students have been unable to see the amazing Parliamentary Library. This past year, however, it was finally open again after years of being closed to the public while it was being restored.

This fascinating documentary from CBC’s The National follows the unbelievably complex project that has helped to save this building for future generations. It’s well worth seeing and I’ll be making sure that my students watch this before our next visit to Ottawa.
