Indeed, I was there two weeks ago. What a lovely city! Quebecers are so friendly.

The food was delicious as well. The best Poutine and French food (outside France) I've ever had!

Are there any height restrictions in Ottawa?

It's widely thought that nothing can be taller than the Peace Tower but the staff working the elevator going up the Peace Tower said it's not true. That said, buildings in the core all seem a uniform height (17-20 floors) and use the entire lot. It suggests that there is a height limit and developers want to maximize every inch of space they have. The result are some surprisingly nice urban canyons in Ottawa.

Outside the core one can go higher. There's an Ottawa condo proposal that's 190m (Sky One) and its twin at 155m (845 Carling). They're the first tall buildings to be proposed for Ottawa.

Those lights on the right at the horizon, would that be New Westminster?

Nice to see Edmonton skyline shots on here. Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary are roughly even in Canada but Edmonton could move into that group and make it a 4 horse race. Stantec will change things considerably.
