Bullet damage in the halls of Parliament’s Centre Block after the gunfight that killed Michael Zehaf-Bibeau is now being “catalogued” by experts, who are trying to decide what they should repair and what should be left in memory of that day.
Heather Bradley, a spokeswoman for the House of Commons Speaker’s Office said any damage experts feel compromises the integrity of an object or an area, such that it could be susceptible to further deterioration, will have to be repaired.
MPs have expressed mixed feelings on what should be done with the damage left by the events of the Ottawa shooting.
Some feel the damage acts as a reminder of the unfortunate day and should be repaired, while others feel portions of the damage should be preserved as part of the country’s history.
Should the bullet holes in parliament be filled in / covered up or should they remain as a reminder of the act of terrorism that befell Ottawa?
