Here is the video you can view when you click on the What is a BeaverTail? section of the new BeaverTails website.
Will President Obama have time to partake in Winterlude festivities I hear some ask? Unfortunately, many speculators agree that the new President will have a lot on his plate to discuss with Prime Minister Harper and so the chance of seeing him skating along the Rideau Canal might not be in the cards for now. Nonetheless, you can show your support and have an ObamaTail in celebration of his visit. After all, the parliament is a mere seven minutes walk away from the Rideau Canal and the ByWard Market.
How busy of a schedule?
President Obama will be greeted by the Governor General at 10:30 this morning at the International Ottawa Airport. At 11:30 he will meet with Prime Minister Harper and then following-up with a press conference at 2:45 this afternoon. At 4:00 pm, he will be greeted and sent off for his return to Washington at the airport by Liberal opposition leader Michael Ignatieff. A short and sweet visit, like a neighbour casually making his introductions around the block.
This weekend is your last chance to partake in the Winterlude festivities for the 2009 edition. With the newly fallen snow, it is the ideal time to take in some winter fun as opposed to the dewy temperatures of the previous weekend. Here’s hoping for another great wrap-up season!
In the end, President Obama had time to visit the ByWard Market and have a BeaverTail!
