I visited Ottawa for Canada Day celebrations with Sylvia, daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. Spent a couple nights in a local hotel to be closer to the festivities.
What a fiasco! Security was in place like at airports, but the lineups were atrocious! No toilets . . . no buskers . . . no large screens to see the festivities on Parliament Hill . . . no street food to speak of! Many people were very disappointed.
Here are some memories of that day.
