I'm planning a short getaway to Ottawa. Anybody know the deal with tours of parliament? The website says they last between 20-60 minutes "depending on parliament activity". What does that mean? Can you actually watch a question period? Should I contact my MP first? I guess I need to go before mid-May if I actually want to see them in action (if that's even possible) before they take their short 4 month summer break.
Any other advice on what to see/do? I'm taking the train there so I won't have a car.
