If you are ever in Ottawa, The Hek strongly recommends that you take a tour of the Parliament Buildings. Today, a very special visitor and I decided to go on a tour and we had a great time. We went to the observation tower just below the clock on the centre tower and the scenery was breathtaking. We also went through two security checks. After the tour we we're allowed to go to the House of Commons public gallery and watch the Federal Government in action.
Which leads me to this point...
Ain't the Government great? Out of the 301 Members of Parliament that are suppose to be sitting in the House of Commons there were only about 7 MP's that were actually sitting today. Even the Speaker of The House skipped out on Friday's Question Period (the back up speaker took his place). That's politics for you.
