The "Ottawa" sign is now a year old, but I found a pretty day time good picture with Parliament in the background;

Cool. Like a glowstick growing out of a tree stump.

Videotron Centre looks good! Quite possibly the best angles I've seen.

The artwork near the cruise terminal; that suppose to be cigarette butts? Very fitting!

An Indigenous mural has been painted on public housing in the Rawlin's Cross area of St. John's. It includes duplications of paintings by Shanawdithit she made in captivity (after learning English) to explain Beothuk culture and lifestyle. She was one of the last Beothuk and voted by Newfoundlanders and Labradorians several times as the most significant indigenous woman in our history. Her memorial, and one of the places she lived after being captured, are nearby.

Pic via FB of today's unveiling:



Quote:
In addition of an obituary announcement in a local St. John's newspaper on June 12, 1829, the death of Shanawdithit was reported in the London Times on September 14, 1829. The announcement noted that Shanawdithit "exhibited extraordinary strong natural talents" and identified the Beothuk as "an anomaly in the history of man" for not establishing or maintaining relationships with European settlers or other Indigenous peoples.

...

Shanawdithit is widely known among Newfoundlanders. In 1851, a local paper, the Newfoundlander, called her "a princess of Terra Nova". In 1999, The Telegram readers voted her the most notable aboriginal person of the past 1,000 years. She had 57% of the votes.
