The House of Commons Foyer
The Foyer is probably most familiar to Canadians as the setting for the ritual known as "the scrum" where – following Question Period and debates in the House of Commons – Members of Parliament field questions, following Question Period and debates in the House of Commons surrounded by journalists, cameras and recording devices.
The House of Commons Foyer is the meeting place of many of the elements of Parliament and Centre Block. Parliamentarians' offices ring the edges of this magnificent room which presents fantastically sculpted detail combined with a solemn atmosphere. It is no wonder that the media and Members meet on its floor to bring the stories of the day's debates and decisions into homes across Canada.
