post-image

Brent Bambury and CBC’s Day 6 recorded an entertaining interview for Canada Day with our founder Ron Williamson and Rollo Myers, the former manager of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario. Together they told the story of the discovery and partial excavation of Canada’s First Parliament site back in 2000. Ron, Rollo and Brent visited the downtown Toronto site which is currently home to a car wash, where they spoke to passers by to discover how few people realised they were on top of an essential site in Canadian history.

You can listen to the whole segment, and see some historical images of the Parliament Building right here.
