|Don't let them do this to the HoC|
Well, they want to do it to Parliament. From the CBC:
The federal government has approved plans to build a magnificent $42-million glass dome on Parliament Hill as a new home for the House of Commons — a temporary one.Not only will this "temporary home" for the House of Commons be a costly piece o' work that we're not even going to use for that long, it's going to be one ugly piece o' shit. I'm sorry, but the classical architecture of the Commons and Senate chambers is beautiful - this is just wrong.
The Commons will be moved to the fancy new digs while the existing chamber on Parliament Hill is being renovated, a process expected to take about seven years.
MPs and their parliamentary seats will then be moved back to the current chamber, and the soaring glass dome renovated at further expense to house three parliamentary committee rooms.
The federal Public Works Department claims the project will cost $42 million, but won't say what is included in that amount.
A number of experts familiar with the project have told CBC News that the temporary glass-domed Commons will almost certainly end up costing Canadian taxpayers well over $100 million.
I beg of you, I don't even care about the costs - don't do that to our Parliament. Please, please, don't. It isn't dignified. It's an ugly mess.
