Happy Birthday to the Legislative Building! This month we delve into the history of Ontario's Parliament Building and take a closer look at the architectural features, changes, and additions that have taken place over the years. We also set a new fun fact record and even managed to squeeze in some great architectural puns! This is one birthday celebration you don't want to miss!
This month ON Parliament presents a special episode in honour of International Women's Day. We had the opportunity to interview three former MPPs about their time at Queen's Park and learned all about what it means to be a woman in politics. Special thanks to Sharon Murdock, Janet Ecker and Mary Anne Chambers for sharing their compelling stories with us. This is an episode you definitely don’t want to miss!
This month's episode explores the difference between two often confused terms: Parliament and Government. We delve a little deeper into why they're important, how they're different and what each one truly means. We're hoping this episode will help expand everyone's parliamentary vocabulary but have no fear, there will be lots of fun facts along the way (and some pretty sweet parliamentary puns too).
In our first episode we explore 229 years of Ontario's parliamentary history: from fires to stolen maces, a controversial design competition to big changes in parliament, this month's episode has something for everyone. Join us as we begin our journey to demystify the function, importance, and history of Ontario's Parliament (there will be lots of fun facts along the way)!
