Michael is originally from Victoria, and after I graduated I moved out to Vancouver. I love it here, but I'm also excited to move back to Toronto where my family lives.

last pic of me skating on the canal in Ottawa (where I went for University) a month before I moved out to Vancouver:

my first year of university I lived right off of the canal and I used to skate to and from school...it was my favorite especially coming home after a night at the campus pub and stopping to get "beaver tails" (flat doughnut..yumm)

OMG I remember beaver tails on the canal. We lived in Ottawa for a few years growing up. I can't remember many things about ottawa except the science museum and the crooked kitchen and beaver tails on the canal.

      yea the canal goes through Ottawa, and you can skate from downtown to the university ..its really fun. All along the way you can have hot chocolate, apple cider, beaver tails etc... (to put back all the calories you burned skating haha)

        I grew up in Ottawa, and the FI and I love living here. We feel that it's the perfect place to raise a family (especially since most of our fam is here). We love the Canal and all the nature trails. We moved in together after university (U of O!!) and decided to move to Sandy Hill which is definetly fun, but when we decided to buy, we moved to the West End. Thats so fun that you lived in Ottawa..we are definetly a minority on this forum! Good luck planning!

            So here's a stupid question- can you get a Skating While Intoxicated (SWI)? People in the US can get it for riding bikes, skateboards while intoxicated. Just wondering because skating back home for a pub sounds like fun!

            lol well luckly they don't have anyone checking intoxication levels before getting on the canal. It's probably not the safest thing but its loads of fun! haha!

            Ottawa was my favorite, I wish I could go back in time to my Carleton days :)
