_ (Via NCC) _ ** Canada’s Capital Region - ** During this holiday season, beautiful natural Christmas trees light up the official residences, thanks to a donation from the Canadian Christmas Tree Growers Association (CCTGA). They are Fraser firs, ranging from 3 to 3.6 metres (10 to 12 feet) in height, from the Ottawa area.
The Christmas trees , now installed and decorated, are a wonderful addition to the seasonal decorations at the official residences. The National Capital Commission (NCC) is proud of and thankful for this ten-year tradition of collaboration with the CCTGA.
The NCC installed Christmas trees at Rideau Hall _ , _ historic home and workplace of the governor general of Canada; Rideau Cottage, interim residence of the prime minister of Canada; Stornoway , official residence of the leader of the Opposition, Harrington Lake , the country residence of the prime minister of Canada in Gatineau Park, The Farm , official residence of the speaker of the House of Commons and at 7 Rideau Gate , Canada’s official “guest house”.
