May the fourth be with you

In a galaxy far, far away ... also in Ottawa

A few dozen students, tourists and government employees stopped briefly to listen Monday as the Dominion carillonneur played a rendition of the Star Wars theme song on the Peace Tower bells as part of her daily noon-hour performance.

Politicos in Ottawa joined cops and sports teams in an online trend to celebrate the Star Wars film franchise and it’s famous line “May the force be with you.”
