I've been off line for a while, mostly due to a week long business/holiday trip to Ottawa. The CIA (the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, not the other one) scheduled it's annual meeting for June 29-30th in Ottawa (the 2 days before Canada day for non Canucks), so we combined my trip with family holidays.
Say the royals, didn't quite get to Parliament Hill on July 1st (300k people did which made it difficult), but did other Canada Day stuff including the fireworks. We also did the National Gallery and the Museum of Civilization. Good times all around.
