Or without ever leaving downtown:
- Parliament Hill (I'm still shaking my head over the Feds' arrogance in saying no to the Live8 concert and then giving it to Toronto FOR FREE, without even picking up the phone and asking Ottawa City Hall if they would maybe like to take a stab at hosting it somewhere else...)
- At the top of Elgin Street, with the stage in front of the National War Memorial and 200,000 people on the street itself all the way to Laurier. With big screens on the NAC's blank walls for those far away.
