Takes you behind the scenes of the official tourist sites--Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal, the National Gallery of Canada--and into the places only locals know. From restaurants where Cabinet ministers do lunch to Canada's only Cordon Bleu cooking school, from Elvis Lives Lane to a bog carpeted with Arctic wildflowers, and from outlet shops for lingerie to dim wine cellars awash in live jazz, this guidebook shows you how to dig under the government-approved surface to find the city other tourists--and many residents--miss.
