Long Description:
This hidden mural is in the loading dock alleyway beside the Giant Tiger store at 98 George Street in the Byward Market. Created in 1992 by celebrated canadian mural artist Pierre Hardy. It encompases the entire alley on both sides and above. This work truly needs to be seen to appreciate it.

"A tribute to the Franco-Ontarians" covers 2000 square feet. The mural illustrates Pierre Hardy's artist interpretation and factual Franco-Ontarian impression. "I hope this tribute to the Franco-Ontarians will create a sense of belonging, enrich our community, history, our heritage and our future. I also hope this mural will add to the pride and sense of imagination of the Franco-Ontarians" said Hardy while working on the mural.
