Dear Ottawa Tourism Commission:

Nice try.

I just saw your newest commercial and, let me say, it's going to take more than that to get me back. The addition of a "light show" on our parliamentary buildings seems like a huge waste of money and, clearly, other countries are going to be laughing at us because our primary decision-making building now looks like a Christmas tree...or an all-night diner.

Also, you missed the best parts, which are the Beavertails, skating on the river (not the same as taking a shitty-looking boat tour on the river) and the wine show. OH - and being able to just zip across the river to purchase large beers for $5 at gas stations in Quebec.

I give you a C for trying...but an overall F.

"Just go?"

No thanks.

(but you're welcome to try again)
