  • If you are at Parliament Hill then a visit to the Peace Tower is a must. The views from here are wonderful. The memorial at the bottom of the tower is also great to visit, very touching. 
  • The visit to the tower is included in the guided tour of the Parliament, for it is necessary to go in advance information to the window across the street to get free entries. It is necessary to go in the morning, the afternoon runs the risk of not having more room, because they are fixed times of visits in English or French. I was in November and it was not possible to carry out the visit during the weekends, I don't know if it's always like this or something temporary, it is worth informing before!

  • Awesome Sunday praise and worship. Friendly, honest people of all ages. Riveting messages and a building of antique architectural beauty. The church is the people in it and this is a good, joyful crowd. The Sunday School for children and youth is fabulous too. They have a creche for little babies and manned toddlers play area during Sunday services where the little ones are safely cared for. The Church runs lots of other weekday activities, refer their website.
