  • La Machine wraps up with a fiery finale at LeBreton Flats

    Organizers of La Machine, which wrapped up on Sunday night at LeBreton Flats, say the event drew more than 750,000 spectators over four days, and call it the "biggest theatrical production ever in Ottawa." Sunday's finale featured an epic battle between giant robot creatures Long Ma, a horse-dragon, and Kumo, a spider.

    A 50-member live orchestra and choir provided the soundtrack as thousands watched.
    After the robot operators and performers took their final bow, the crowd started chanting "La Machine! La Machine!"

    If there’s a signature Canadian character trait, it’s saying sorry all the time.

    We are a nation of apologists, be it just bumping into a stranger on the elevator to groveling forgiveness for scandals dating back generations.

    Even on the eve of our 150th birthday, some feel guilty at marking Canada's official birth when our country was occupied by indigenous peoples long before Confederation.
