  The Peace Tower
by duanestorey

If you've ever seen the Parliament Buildings on TV, you'll notice a big clock tower in front. That tower is called the Peace Tower, and you can go up inside of it while on the parliament building tour. Ottawa has a height bylaw, meaning that no building in the downtown core may be taller than the Peace Tower. It's actually really cool, since that means there are no looming skyscrapers in Ottawa.

From inside the Peace Tower, you'll great a great view of downtown Ottawa, as well as Hull Quebec.
