Ottawa is the Capital city of Canada and the second largest city in the province of Ontario. Ottawa is a city filled with history and friendly people. The Capital has not always been the beautiful city it is becoming today. It started as a military building site, then a prosperous lumber town, and then the City of Ottawa was suddenly given the top rank among Canadian cities by royal edict. Now it has become the cultural showcase for the nation!
