Why Ottawa will never win

Having moved from Montreal to Ottawa I often find myself frustrated at
Ottawa’s small-town attitude, conservatism, and generally not being
a world-class city.

Walking down Elgin Street the other night, Candice and I
passed a bar (can’t remember which) with a sign out front that
read

Live Jazz

Tonight
7:30 – 10:30

Let me establish again that this was a bar, not a restaurant.
What sort of screwed-up city has early evening jazz clubs? Sheesh,
in Montreal I might arrive by 10:30.
