My wife and I were most excited about going through the Province House, particularly as it was during the 150th celebrations for the birthplace of Confederation. We were most disappointed when we turned up for a tour and found that it was closed for renovation....More

While I do admit it is supremely disappointing that the “birthplace of Confederation” is closed – and has been closed for some time (since 1 January 2015) – for extensive renovations and won’t be open again for “3 – 5 years,” it is still nonetheless...More
