Day 171 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Discovering Halifax.

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. I spotted this spill out front of the Via Rail station, interestingly enough, the arrow is pointing to the Halifax harbor.

The Via Rail station interior was renovated just last year, however it looks like the facade is now in need of some attention.

These clocks show you just how large of a country Canada really is.

Renovated in 2008, the interior of the Via Rail station is simple but classic in its architecture. The Canada and Provincial flags gives a festive feeling the station.

The wind gusted up to 70 kms/hr today in Halifax with a light covering of snow throughout the province. The Point Pleasant park other wise a hub of activity was empty.
