Having worked in the BC Legislature many long years ago, I was very pleased to discover the dining room is now open to the public. And it hasn't changed much since, which made the experience a real sentimental journey for me. During a recent visit...More

I believe the dining room is open from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (basically, the hours for the building itself). However, whether or not it's actually open to the public on any given day... More
