Parliament Hill Ottawa Peace Tower
In 1857, Ottawa was determined by Queen Victoria as capital of the "United Provinces of Ontario and Quebec". This ended a bitter dispute between the three candidates Montreal, Toronto and Kingston for the title. The expansion to the capital progressed rapidly and was crowned by the building of the parliament building in Neo-Gothic style. The government district is dominated by the Peace Tower.
