As promised, I do have one more post about Manitoba's Legislative building and grounds.
I had never actually taken time to walk around on the grounds of this building.
One of the things that caught my attention was this rather large fountain.
Below is an Inukshuk, the meaning, taken from a dictionary is:
A structure of rough stones stacked in the form of a human figure, traditionally used by Inuit people as a landmark or a commemorative sign.
There were numerous statutes, this one is Louis Riel.
I went to Wikipedia and found this about him:
Louis David Riel was a Canadian politician, a founder of the province of Manitoba, and a political leader of the Métis people of the Canadian Prairies. He led two rebellions against the government of Canada and its first post-Confederation prime minister, John A. Macdonald.
You can read much more about him by doing a simple Google search of his name.
Here is just a lovely view of this grand building, with The Golden boy at the top.
The day I was there was a perfect day and the few lazy clouds added to the beauty.
As you have read my commentary about the pictures, you no doubt, realize that I am not a historian, or a politician. I was there to see the beauty of the place.
After this it is back to my regular postings of birds, flowers and landscapes.
Stay well, enjoy the springtime beauty around and above all else, don't forget to be thankful.
