The Modesty of a Lady

Victoria's Empress undergoes a face lift...
Under the gray drab skies of winter, Victoria's landmark Fairmont Empress Hotel is undergoing a $30 million dollar makeover from new owners, who bought it a couple of years ago. Custom tarps that mimic her normal appearance hide the fact of her face lift.

Around the corner the Hotel Grand Pacific -- seen in behind the recently updated Steamship Terminal on the Inner Harbour -- is also under wraps, hidden under more traditional white tarps.

These tarps represent some kind of engineering voodoo to be able to resist the high winds that have been buffeting Victoria for the last week.
