Where Ottawa - - Hot Attractions -

is the seat of Canada’s govern­ment. It’s where our law­mak­ers meet to de­bate and pass bills. It’s also a reg­u­lar spot for protests, cel­e­bra­tions, and im­por­tant cul­tural events. From the Li­brary of Par­lia­ment to the House of Com­mons to the Se­nate, the his­tory of this land­mark goes back to 1859, when con­struc­tion first be­gan. Take a tour of the premises and you’ll learn all about the politi­cians who built this coun­try from the ground up. Make sure you take the el­e­va­tor up to the top of the Peace Tower — it of­fers some stun­ning views of the cap­i­tal. (p. 45)
