As a Canadian and someone who studied criminology briefly in university it was really interesting to see the Supreme Court of Canada. You have to take a tour. There is one every hour. Although I knew a lot of the information I still enjoyed it.More

I apologize for the lack of response. I was unaware there was a question. Alas I cannot answer either, as I walked to the court house - I didn't have a car while in Ottawa. Cheers

There is quite a large parking area in front which on a Sunday was empty - not sure how it would be weekdays when courts are in session.
