A plaque commemorating hundreds of years of democracy was unveiled in Halifax yesterday.

Memorial Tower, locally known as Dingle Tower, was built to commemorate the achievement of representative government in the colony of Nova Scotia and to celebrate Canada’s relationship with the British Empire, a government release said.

Senator Stephen Greene, who made the announcement yesterday at Sir Sandford Fleming Park in Halifax, said the new plaque serves as a “lasting symbol of the birth of parliamentary democracy in Canada.”
