Description : Monument of Lester Bowles Pearson (1897-1972)

When Lester B. Pearson became Canada,s 14th Prime Minister, he had already received the Nobel Peace Prize for creating the United Nations peace-keeping force during his term as President of the General Assembly of the United Nations. While Prime Minister, Pearson,s government established the Canada Pension Plan, universal health care and the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism. It also adopted a striking new flag. Thanks to Pearson,s initiatives at the United Nations, that flag is now recognized world wide as the symbol of a peace-loving nation.

Danek Mozdzenski, the Edmonton-based sculptor responsible for creating this monument, completed the statue in 1989. From where the monument sits, at least twelve Canadian flags can be seen flying in the skies above Ottawa.
