“Great evening event in Ottawa”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

So cool to watch a relatively flat building look like the windows are drawers opening and shutting.

“The best of the various Parliament Hill shows over the years”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Every summer, there is usually a sound and light show on Parliament Hill that lasts approximately 30 minutes and, in that time, attempts to present a snapshot of Canada's history and diversity. In previous years, the shows were quite poor, both in terms of production quality and content. I always had the impression that tourists walked away with a grossly misleading idea of what Canada is about, and that Canadians would neither feel proud of what they saw, nor learned anything from the show.

MosAika is a total revamp, both visually stunning and a lot more interesting than previous years' shows. It is well worth half an hour of your life to visit Parliament Hill on a summer evening and check it out.
