Parliament Buildings

Interesting
On the south side of James Bay stands a long, squat stone building, whose central dome is topped by a gilt statue of Capt. George Vancouver. Designed by Francis Rattenbury (1867-1935) and completed in 1898, the buildings house the legislative assembly. Stationed in front of them is a bronze statue of Queen Victoria. A highly decorated arch beneath the dome marks the entrance. At dusk thousands of small lights outline the buildings' exterior, adding a romantic flair.
