September 17, 2012 Ottawa – The Library of Parliament just launched an excellent multiplatform education tool and resource. It is called ‘Our Country Parliament’. The LofP/Public Education Programs staff should be commended for their great vision, and then the ability to navigate the project over an extended period of time and through many multi-departmental reviews, …and actually deliver a significant product that looks and feels very similar to the original vision. Congrats!!!!
Blomeley Communications has been fortunate to work with the Library of Parliament on numerous occasions over the years. This project is truly unique and worthwhile to anyone wanting to know about the Canadian Parliamentary system and its components. So needless-to-say we are proud to have played a small part in this multi-platform, multi-use, pan-demographic project. It was right up our alley and the results are amazing.
Here are some links to the website and the Library’s You Tube channel. Check it out.
