  • It really feels the place for the people in which you can even walk by the mayor's office. The memorial hall is simply and solemn, you can easily feel the true respect for those who died in the war. T...  more »

  • Update** I changed from 1 star to 3 because simply the building is quite beautiful. But Paid a parking ticket. 2 weeks later my girlfriend gets letter in the mail. Past due and could have to surrender license if not paid. I didn't have the receipt anymore God forbid. Car is in her name so once I tried to inquire no one would tell me a single thing as to how to fix it do I really have to pay it again? (car is in her name so they'll happily take any money toward it. But instantly will turn around and not verify the payment I have made). So here is the money for this ticket. Okay thanks sir ..here we go Is it paid? Oh I can't tell you that sorry. There's no way I can get a receipt or something? No the owner of the vehicle has to be the one to deal with this. So I can deal with it all but I can't tell anyone it's paid with proof. Girlfriend works two jobs and goes to school full time she's a machine and it was actually hard to find time during business hours for her to get down there and back.. All for them to say yes it was paid no worries . should have just ignored that if you knew it was pgod. Doesnt say that anywhere.. Ignore it you already paid, nope. So when I called and she was looking at my file with the license plate number I provided you made it SUCH a hassle when you could have said "Its paid" "Youre good to go" Or if you cant tell me it's paid maybe "Ignore that letter" and I would just assume. So much headache over a small parking ticket
  • I love the architecture. It's a beautiful old building. Well worth taking a tour through
  • Pretty efficient place to get bus passes sorted out. Their wifi is shaky though.
  • Check out the free guided tours of City Hall. Famous for many things including where I became a Canadian. Sure there'll be a plaque one day.
  • Wheelchair accessible facility with great interior architecture.
