OTTAWA
IN   1857   Queen  Victoria was  asked  to   choose  a permanent
capital for the united provinces of Upper and Lower Canada.
The Government at that time was ambulatory,  moving from
one  province  to  the  other  every  four years.     Queen  Victoria
chose Ottawa, very likely on information given by Major-General
Sir Charles Grey, Secretary to the Prince Consort.
The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, laid the cornerstone of the new Parliament Buildings in 1860. They were
occupied in 1865, although still unfinished. The formal proclamation of Union was read in them by Lord Monck, the Governor-
General, on July 1, 1867 and they were officially opened in 1869
with a Grand Ball attended by Prince Arthur of Connaught.
The Houses of Parliament covered four acres, on an eminence
overlooking the Falls of the Chaudiere. They were built in
twelfth century Gothic style, of cream-colored sandstone with
the beautiful ornamentation carried out in Ohio freestone. The
House of Commons was to the right, and the Senate Chamber
to the left of the stately entrance, which was surmounted by the
Victoria Tower, 180 feet high. The main building was 472
feet in length, and 582 feet in depth from the front of Victoria
Tower to the rear of the library. In their unrivalled situation,
the Parliament Buildings presented an imposing appearance, as
impressive as any other capitol in the world.
On Feb 3, 1916, a fire of unexplained origin destroyed the entire
Main Building, with the exception of the library, which was
saved with its 250,000 volumes and fine carvings intact. When
the work of rebuilding began the walls were taken down, stone
by stone, and the relative position of each stone noted, so that
if it were used again it could be placed in the same position.
The corner stone of the new building was laid on September
1, 1916, by the Duke of Connaught, who, as Prince Arthur of
Connaught, had attended the inaugural ball in 1869. The Main
Building follows the general lines of the old, except that the
central tower, now named the Victoria Tower, is Jiigher and the
roof of the building itself has been raised considerably. In
the Victory Tower* there is a carillon which will ring on July
1, for the first time, in celebration of the sixtieth anniversary
of Confederation.
Canada's Parliament Buildings stand to-day as a graceful symbol
of that Confederation which was given stability and permanence
by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
