Parliament's newest green roof isn't iconic copper
Oxidized copper is no longer the only cause of green rooftops around Parliament Hill. The parliamentary precinct got its first live green roof recently. Hundreds of sprigs of stonecrop, a low-growing, low-maintenance ground cover, were planted on the roof of the newly constructed annex to the Sir John A. Macdonald building, just across Wellington Street from the Hill. And there'll be more rooftop greenery planted atop the historic Wellington Building — once extensive renovations are completed.
