All Canadians should attend and watch Question Period or a debate. See for yourself how legislation is made. I highly recommend it! The area is so historic and interesting! Loved it!
Dedicated free tour. Hats off to govt of Canada for doing that. Very informative guides. You have a chance to see the house and Senate floors along with the library which is the highlight of the tour. You can also visit peace tower and a gift shop on your own. Must do in Ottawa!
