So apparently Ottawa won the title of The Most Boring City in Canada. Now, I’ve lived in Toronto and Vancouver and Ottawa and I can say that I’ve had fun in every city that I’ve lived in. I think that there should be a qualifier for the Most Boring city in Canada, true a lot of people in Ottawa ARE boring but that doesn’t make the city itself boring.
Winnipeg for some reason wasn’t even listed, so where is the sense in that?
Ottawa doesn’t have the same population to justify the amount of partying that Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver can generate. BUT it does have some really cool venues that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Ottawa has Time Kode... which I can honestly say is adorable. I’ve partied at some of Toronto’s best clubs in the VIP sections and still not has as much as I did just sweating my way on the dance floor at Time Kode. It has great vibes and the lack of pretension you just can’t find at places like say The Ossington on Ossington in Toronto.
I have some irreplaceable memories of skating down the canal during university and there is no where else in the WORLD where I could have had that experience. True Toronto is a bastion of partying, but saying that Ottawa isn’t boring won’t make Toronto any cooler, it just makes it seem like that desperate guy trying to prove how awesome he is by putting everyone else down.
Ottawa is that kid who doesn’t care if it’s nerdy and that makes it cool in and of itself.
Ottawa isn’t boring if you’re not boring!
