Word

Charles Dickens visited the Nova Scotia House of Assembly of the British colony in 1842 and observed:

“It was like looking at Westminster through the wrong end of a telescope. The Governor delivered the Speech from the Throne. The military band outside struck up God Save the Queen with great vigour; the people shouted; the Ins rubbed their hands, the Outs shook their heads; the Government party said there never was such a good speech; the Opposition declared there never was such a bad one; and in short everything went on and promised to go on just as it does at home.”
