Good Friday Morning, Ottawa

Do you have an Ottawa question you need answered?

What's Ottawa's westernmost point? Was Louise Bourgeois scared of spiders? How many rivets are in the Alexandra Bridge?

Reply to us at [email protected] and we'll get them solved.

A question we heard this week: what do the Girl Guides do since they can't sell cookies this month?

You've never been able to buy them online, and that hasn't changed.

But you can buy them - on an emergency basis - in some shops: FreshCo., Sobeys,  Metro, Foodland, and Food Basics.

Remember, you're not buying cookies, you're supporting girls. Remember that as you eat an entire carton in one sitting.

We’ll see you Monday — Martha and Darren
