Ok, so I’m enjoying these lists. It started with  Three things about Canada last week, and then my old (well, actually not THAT old) Carleton University pal Martha Muzychka weighed in with Three things about Newfoundland and Labrador. And now another Carleton grad–native Ottawan and travel blogging buddy Laura Byrne Paquet–brings us a three things list for our nation’s capital…
