Is there any appetite for filling in more info on Parliament Hill? I mean, I would expect there to be some additional info on the House of Commons, Senate and Library. I don't mean political information but things that a travel guide book would have such as things to notice as you are taking your tour. Specifically, I'd like to say more to the Library, it's really special and worth seeing. On the other hand, that might be too much for the Ottawa page but I'm not sure an attraction would qualify as a page. Johnycanal 13:15, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

The current Stay safe content is confusing. Why should I be afraid of taxi drivers, and what is a "swarming"? Jpatokal 22:25, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
Also, the crime figures were based on a misreading of the Maclean's crime rankings, it would appear. Ottawa was ranked 6th for population out of the the cities they reviewed, but 56th in the actual crime rankings. http://www2.macleans.ca/2009/03/05/the-most-dangerous-cities-in-canada/. Even if you look at it by population, it should show the actual crime rank on the side. Since this is a huge difference I have changed the number to 56th. I also am not sure if it's fair to call Gatineau one of the most dangerous cities in Canada given its ranking, but I will leave that up to someone else if they want to edit that. --126.96.36.199 10:53, 1 September 2009 (EDT)
Train station to downtown by foot
Bonjour à tous! I once met a traveling couple who had just arrived at the Ottawa Train station. They were eager to get downtown by foot, but the 417 (6 lane highway) was in their way. There's a way to get downtown through bike paths and Strathcona Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strathcona_Park_(Ottawa)). I am not sure where would be the best spot to put this. In the Get In/By Train section? At the bottom of the page? A separate page?
Ottawa Train Station
I noticed on the Ottawa page that the main train station in Ottawa was being listed as Union Station. However, I am pretty sure this is the name of the old station on Sussex Drive that was long ago turned into a government conference centre. The "new" station in Alta Vista is officially called Ottawa Station (a name almost as bland as the station itself).
So, I have changed all references in the article to Union Station over to "Ottawa Station". Yodaki 02:03, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
Is Ottawa ready? I think it has enough information, sadly I cannot do it, maybe a few small edits, but thats it. Any regular article contributers up for the job? Idunt know, what do you think? Honestly I think it just goes down to if anyone want's to do it. It IS hard work. Keep smiling, Edmontonenthusiast 21:45, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
