The leg. (Pronounced “ledge”)

This is the British Columbia Parliament Building, home of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.  It is…affectionately (?) known as “The Leg”.  This is not, however, pronounced “leg”, as in the appendages of your body attached to the hip, extending down to your feet.  It is pronounced “ledge”, as in legislature, legislative, jump off the ledge.

  3. You will notice that it does not meet provincial building code re: the hand rails and lack thereof on the upper steps. Are our elected officials above the law?
    Great photo!
