    No not Washington - this buggy humid city is the one north of the border.

    Ottawa's current motto 'en Advance' sounds in these post credit-crunch times too much like begging for a pay-day loan so apparently they are looking for a new motto.

    Since these are the same people who given a choice of the Polar bear, Grizzly, Moose, Orca , Seals or the noble cod - chose a 40lb rat as the nations symbol - they are looking for public input.

    So far suggestions include:
    • Ottawa - it's the capital city of Canada/Ottawa - c'est la ville capitale de Canada.
    • Ottawa - your tax dollars at play
    • Ottawa - no longer the worlds coldest capital
    • What happens in Ottawa stays in Ottawa

    Been there, took the tour, don't have to do it again.

    It's like a trip to Mecca. Every Canadian should do it at least once in their life. :)
