Favorite thing: The statue of Louis St. Laurent (1882-1975) stands outside the Supreme Court building on Parliament Hill, which is appropriate because it was during his tenure as Premier (1948-1957)that this institution became the ultimate source of legal authority within Canada. Moreover, this Quebec-born Liberal was a noted jurist himself.

The sculptor who created the work was Elek Imredy, a refugee from the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. He settled in Vancouver and contributed much to the art world in the Canadian west.
