Rightly, it should be quite a spectacle because after all, it did involved the eight-eyed, water-spraying, 40-ton robotic arachnid slugging out with a robotic dragon, but it did not go down well with many catholics because the said spider not only roamed the street packed with curious onlookers, but it also ‘scaled’ the walls of Ottawa’s Notre Dame Cathedral, perched on top of the church before making its way down.
