Northern Lights, Ottawa, August

Each summer after dusk, there is a sound and light show -- Northern Lights -- on the face of the Parliament Buildings. At a technical level, it is exceptionally well done and enjoyable. But as for the content, it is pure propaganda. One would think that all has been well with Canada over the last five hundred years. And, wait, the USA lost the War of 1812? I think not? I had thought that Canada could just rest on its many laurels without having to rely on propaganda. One of the folk in the park was telling me that this is Prime Minister Harper at his patriotic best --makes total sense.
