? Road Trip
Next week, your ottawan writers will be taking a long awaited holiday: driving from Toronto, across the prairies, through the Rockies, to Vancouver. (We're taking the train from here to the Centre of the Universe).
Incredibly, we'll still be sending out the the ottawan daily, written from flickering neon motels across the land. But please be patient if service is a little spotty next week.
If you have suggestions on what to see/where to eat, email to us at [email protected]
