AAA Editor Notes
Manitoba Legislative Building, bordered by Broadway Ave., Kennedy and Osborne sts. and the Assiniboine River, reflects neoclassical design in native Tyndall limestone. The Italian marble grand staircase is guarded at its base by two life-size bronze bison, the emblems of Manitoba.

Atop the dome is Golden Boy by Parisian sculptor Georges Gardet. The torch, in the right hand, points to economic development and progress in the north; the sheaf of wheat in the left arm represents agriculture. This 5.25-metre-tall (17.2-ft.) statue weighs 1,650 kilograms (3,638 lbs.) and is sheathed in 24 karat gold leaf. The statue represents eternal youth and the province's spirit of enterprise. Plots on the site's 12 hectares (30 acres) contain flowers, foliage and ornamental plants.

Guided tours are conducted daily on the hour 9-4, July 1-Labour Day; by appointment rest of year. Self-guiding tours are available daily 8-8, year-round.
