Departs: 10am SE Corner of Commercial Drive & Venables Street and ends near Commercial & Graveley. From 1923 to 1996, when it closed for major heritage restoration, Canada House was a focal point in London’s Trafalgar Square. At the time of the 1911 census the house was still home to Donald, his wife Jane, daughters May and Maud, and Jane’s parents Xavier and Flora Arseneau. Canada House will be a hub for Canadian athletes to celebrate their achievements throughout the games. T. A. Smith’s house is visible on the top right corner of the picture just down the street from the old firehall.
For property-obsessed Australia, Canada could be a handy barometer to see if the market will finally be tipped over the edge. But now I see a much more acceptable reason for having this feature in a house. Nor was the building helped by years of vacancy, after the Mulroney government moved staff into other buildings and gradually shut down Canada House as part of a downsizing plan. His organization had organized its house with the help of partners such as Canadian Tire, Petro-Canada and Bell Canada. You can see that the 1912 era house was set back farther from the road than both of its neighbours while the house that stood on the lot by 1930 stood much closer to the street. The banks entered willing into a contract that said, hey you don’t feel like paying that mortgage, fine, we’ll take the house in lieu of further payment.
However with the adoption of the lie that only the Commons held genuine legitimacy because of its election by the mob (sorry the people), coupled with the so-called reform of 1965 which forced senators to retire at 75, the Senate had become largely irreverent, and no longer does the job for which it was intended.
The tour departs from the SE corner of Commercial and Venables near the site of the neighbourhood’s first electric light and ends near Commercial and Gravely in front of the site of Grandview’s first house. Access to Canada Paralympic House is limited to registered friends and families of Team Canada athletes. One of the biggest disappointments I come across during my work as a house history researcher is to find that an original house at an address I have been researching has been demolished and replaced with something new. The tax treaty between the US and Canada provides for claiming back tax paid to the US government on Canadian tax forms (Foreign Tax Credit), but only if the income is of the same type. The display of work throughout Canada House is not atypical—all Canadian embassies or high commissions contain examples of domestic art.
This arrangement supposedly originated in the days when the English House met in St Stephen’s Chapel, and it suits the adversarial nature of Canada’s responsible government system. The Speaker decides who has the floor, applies the rules of procedure, makes rulings, and manages the administration of the House and its employees. A week before the international Neutrino 2016 conference, a new exhibit highlighting the 2015 Nobel Prize winning research by SNO was opened to the public on Canada Day in London.
