No sleeping in on Victoria Day

Every day at noon, a cannon is fired on Citadel Hill, which is across the street from the apartment. Today's shot was so loud, the cats scattered -- mine went and hid, Amanda's sat and look afraid. But then, seconds later, another blast. Then another. Must have something to do with Victoria Day. Here's video shot after I took some photos (see the BigAss Photo Gallery for those). NOTE: This is not the normal noon cannon. The noon cannon is much louder.

  1. I know it's annoying, but this just proves how laid back Haligonians are -- you can shoot a cannon in the middle of the city and no one, except for the CFA's, bat an eyelash.

    It would really suck if we were attacked and just thought it was the noon cannon freaks getting their rocks off again.
