From Wikipedia: Ottawa is the capital of Canada, and the fourth largest city in the country. The city is located on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of Southern Ontario. Ottawa borders Gatineau, Quebec, and together they form the National Capital Region (NCR).

Founded in 1826 as Bytown and incorporated as "Ottawa" in 1855, the city has evolved into a political and technological centre of Canada. Its original boundaries were expanded through numerous minor annexations and ultimately replaced by a new city incorporation and major amalgamation in 2001 which significantly increased its land area. The name "Ottawa" is derived from the Algonquin word adawe, meaning "to trade". Initially an Irish and French Christian settlement, Ottawa has become a multicultural city with a diverse population

The Centre Block (in FrenchÉdifice du centre) is the main building of the Canadian parliamentary complex on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa,Ontario, containing the House of Commons and Senate chambers, as well as the offices of a number of members of parliament, senators, and senior administration for both legislative houses. It is also the location of several ceremonial spaces, such as the Hall of Honour, the Memorial Chamber, and Confederation Hall.

Built in the Gothic Revival style, the present Centre Block is the second iteration of the building, after the first was destroyed by fire in 1916; all that remains of the original building is the Library of Parliament, at the rear of the Centre Block. Though construction began immediately after the blaze, sculpting work on the interior continued through the 1970s. One of the most recognizable buildings in Canada, the Centre Block is depicted on the Canadian $10 bill (the Library of Parliament), $20 bill (the main entrance), and the $50 bill (the Peace Tower).

Your task is to take and post a picture of you (or your GPS, if you're shy) with Centre Block clearly visible.

We visited Ottawa for the big Canada 150 celebrations. Waited 3 hours, 9 - noon, in a line up that ground to a halt beside the Bank of Canada building. All the while being passed by other Canadians who instead walked up and merged into the crowd - no wonder the line stopped moving. Newspapers are billing the day as chaotic - they got that right. Organizers drop the ball on this one. Totally disorganized lineups, no where to use the washroom, no food for sale once you got onto the hill....and then there was the rain - showers, downpours, thunder storms, the works. So our Canada Day 150 was a real downer. But we returned on Monday and toured about seeing the sights including a good amount of time on Parliament Hill

This is one of four virtuals in Ottawa today - 2 on this site and 2 on Terracaching. Just over 4 years on this one and no finds yet? Okay, another OCNA FTF for me. Thanks DudleyGrunt
