If there's anything left of Fort York in Toronto by the time you get there, you could visit that.

Of course, you can see Province House in PEI where Confederation was signed, and walk down the path that the Fathers of Confederation staggered drunk down to the waterfront in Charlottetown (it's true!). You can also stop at the spot where Terry Fox ended his Marathon of Hope.

You might stop in Ottawa, there's some notable history there but that route might take you past Toronto (or is that your plan already).

When I did a trip like this once I stopped at all the provincial parliament buildings, and except for NL have been to all of them.
Thanks, je.

Yeah My time in Quebec is centered around seeing all of the Seven Years War sites at a minuimum. I'm also hoping get to to practice my French some. I've dug out oall of my notes and textbooks to start refreshing as I haven't taken a course in French in about a year.

I'm actually considering trading the side trip on the Canol for time to go up to PEI. I love telling people that, when it comes to forming countries, Americans have wars, Canadians have meetings.

Do I detect a bit of anomosity against Toronto?
