If you are in Ottawa, this is a must!

Nothing more to say, don't miss out when in the Nation's capital. Like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel tower :).

I had friends in for a visit to Ottawa, and they wanted to see the Parliament Buildings. We were not able to see them but did get to go up the crocked elevator to the top of the Peace Tower. Very good views of Ottawa. Lots of history and touching tributes to Canadian war heros. Worth a visit!
