Ottawa says farewell.

On the way home from work, before picking up our boys, I stopped by the hill for a moment. A huge lineup snaked all the way past the East Block and down the street on the other side.

It is very nice to see so many people salut the honorable man, who so often stood up for the well being of others, even when it involved risk and ridicule.

Olivia Chow came out and walked through the lineup to thank the people for coming down to show their respect.

There has been a bit a sombre mood in the town since Monday morning. Below is a sign in the window of the bookstore across the street from our home.
