"From my perspective Ottawa is the heart of Canada. All roads lead here and away from here. The blood of the Canadian people’s hopes and dreams come here tired and depleted only to be pumped out again revitalized and prepared to face another day. This is where the battle for life is fought one heart beat at a time."
