I watched it on CBC coverage this morning. Obama shook Harper's hand and then said "do you mind if we go outside and say hi to those guys?" (the crowd) I thought that was nice of him.

Then on the way up the steps to Harper's office he says "this is spectacular". I bet he took a tour of Parliament before he left, how could you not? it's one gorgeous building.

I was there! Well, sort of, I watched from my 18th floor office that has a partial view of the Parliament Buildings, the canal, and the arrival route. I saw a zillion police cars & lots of shiny black Suburbans with guys with thingies in their ears. We watched Obama come in (OK, I saw a bunch of black vehicles, and I'm sure he was in one of them), with two helicopters circling. One actually hovers over wherever he is at all times. Unless it's to trick bad guys. But I had to walk most of the way home; downtown was gridlocked because the bus transitway crosses his route back to the airport, so traffic wasn't able to get through. For us civil servants, this was the most fun we've had for some time!

BEV!! Were you there? You probably can't say :cool:
