half part of Ottawa is in Ontario, while the other half is in Quebec... And many road signs are both in English and French.
Ottawa is more classic and formal than Toronto. YOu could feel the different atmosphere. The Parlimental Hill looks like an old castle, reminding me those 007 movies, or weapon business between western countries....
I just visited it yesterday... The view is good on the top of the clock tower, looking down the whole city. It's an old and elegant town.
When u have time, welcome to Ottawa....
