Risking sounding insensitive; I respect the mural, however, it is not my fave from 2015. I feel it was politically judged, rather than artistically judged. I have felt this, or sometimes that the art and politics are both a recipe for winning MOY. If that is the criterion, then why did the Nellie McClung Mural not winMOY 2016? I adore the mural that won, but it has nothing on Nellie and her gals getting women the vote.
Moving on: A truck blocked part of the left side of the mural.
Here are some close-ups.

I had to go around to shoot what the truck blocked on the left of the mural.
I shot the above Mountie & below, Tam Nguyen who owns the building the mural is painted on.
I would like to take an appropriate moment to thank J. Walters for the posts of hers I used for Kids’ Month. Her blog Canadian Art Junkie not only features Canadian artists, but is running a special this year featuring 150 Canadian Artists to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
