Canada – Ontario

In honour of Canada Day today, a card from the capital, Ottawa, showing the changing of the guard in front of the Parliament Buildings. Construction of buildings on Parliament Hill began in 1859 after Queen Victoria chose the small mill town of Ottawa over the much larger cities of Toronto and Montreal as capital of Canada.

Thanks to Paul, who was visiting for work.

Previously featured self-adhesive, permanent domestic rate stamps commemorating the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
