This lovely card came from my swap buddy Marie, the card itself is great and it brings back a bunch of nice memories from a trip I made to Canada 3 years ago, it has really cool stamps and even a cool postmark! It's from Saint-Valentin's post office which is quite famous, you can read a bit more about it and the Love post office in Saskatchewan here 

Ottawa is the capital of Canada. The city is situated along the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, is currently the fourth largest city in Canada, and the second largest in Ontario after Toronto. 
Unique as a North American capital, the city is bilingual. English is the first language of a majority of the population, but French is the first language of a significant number. Staff in most stores and restaurants speak both well and, in general, bilingualism is common.
Today, the major economic sectors are the public service, travel and tourism and the high-tech industry. Ottawa has proudly remained a green city and is situated at the confluence of three rivers (Ottawa, Rideau and Gatineau) as well as the Rideau canal. Many national attractions are located in Ottawa: Parliament Hill; the National Library and Archives; the National Gallery; as well as the Museums of Civilization, Contemporary Photography, Nature, War and Science & Technology.

Thank you Marie!
