Ms Soapbox is on her way to Ottawa. There’s a good chance she’s in the air right now squashed into a tiny little seat trying to figure out why her WestJet onboard entertainment app isn’t working (luckily, she’s brought along her youngest daughter “Mini” who will fix the glitch in no time).
We’re going to check out the Parliament Buildings, Centre Block, which is about to undergo a major renovation. Everything from the heritage stone exterior to the copper roof and building systems is due for an upgrade. Technology, security and earthquake protection (earthquake protection?) are also being improved.
Our MP Kent Hehr helped us get tour tickets and Question Period passes. We’re delighted because we’re sure QP in the nation’s capital is a more civilized affair than QP here in Alberta (that is really hard to say with a straight face).
We will be visiting as many museums and art galleries as we can; if you know of a special place you think we should see, let us know.
Talk to you next week!
