One of Calgary's original lion sculptures is getting a second life

One of Calgary's most distinctive landmarks is the Centre Street Bridge, with its four lion sculptures watching over people streaming into and out of downtown. Those lions are replicas of the originals first put on the bridge in 1917. Today, one of the originals began its journey to a new location, where it will be restored. Sarah Meilleur is the Vice Chair of the Calgary Heritage Authority. She joined Doug Dirks in studio with more details.
