wandering over to the Museum of Civilization? It's a pity they were renovating the library; the scaffoldin detracts from the building somewhat. I quite like the Canadian houses of parliament; kinda like the one in London except half the size, with the weird circular library, and a green copper roof...

actually, I was in a car, on my way back from Mulvihil Lake in Gatineau.
I'm ashamed to say that I've never looked at these buildings up close and personal.

I think the buildings are quite nice. I do like the way they've taken the London houses of Parliament and "Canadianized" them. Never quite got the obsession with the copper roofs in that city, although they do look cool both when coppery coloured, and green-oxidised-coloured.
