Newsday’s Neil Best really needs to get out a bit.
New York says it is capital of the world. Ottawa just has to make do with being capital of Canada. Sorry.
But Best has a bad on for Ottawa … his loss. Here is Neil at his best:
Even Canadians are bored by (Ottawa), a city selected to be the capital largely because it was in a non-descript area between Toronto and Montreal over which neither metropolis could muster the energy to be jealous.
Anyway, try we must, because Ottawa is all we have for the Rangers in between the Canadiens and a potentially juicy showdown against either the Capitals or Penguins in the Eastern Conference final next month.
No one is saying that New York isn’t an interesting place, Neil. We’re just saying that Ottawa is smart, beautiful and nice.
Given all the attractions in Ottawa, if you are bored with Ottawa, you’re bored with life. And if Toronto and Montreal don’t like Ottawa, it’s probably because they are as myopic as New Yorkers.
To make the case for Ottawa (as though it really needs to be made) we give you an Ottawa Tourism video.
Take notes Neil. Pay a visit. You might learn something.
Yes Neil we hope to see you soon. Here’s Neil’s best column from Newsday. Just click here.
