It would be great if there was a way to post Ottawa messages again, since Ottawa got lumped in with Toronto we no longer see any posts for Ottawa. I'm reasonably certain this message will not make it to the boards since chowhound doesn't seem interested in anything outside Toronto, but if it does than great.

    The Advanced Search may help, but there aren't too many to find, alas.

      1. I'm pretty wure most people have given up posting because they can't get their voices heard.


        1. I wholeheartedly agree, I have practically stopped checking this forum since it rarely has any Ottawa postings and every time I see one that sounds like something in Ottawa, it invariably is a Toronto thread. Suggestions for an Ottawa board have gone unanswered as well as the idea that the each post title have a reference to the city being referred to. Some posters do this (which is great if I don't want to bother reading about yet another Toronto resto) but most don't. The Ottawa posters do since it's the only way of letting readers know that there is a post about Ottawa. I've given up.

            Having lived in the fringers of the GTA, once upon a time, I can generally figure out which are TO posts. But it does remind me of the old light bulb joke:

            "How many Torontoians does it take to change a light bulb?"

            "One, he holds it up and lets the universe revolve around him."

          2. I have also pretty much given up. When there was an Ottawa specific board I use to check almost every day and would post quite often. This has been the first time I have looked in over a month. I now do an advanced search all the time, but there isn't much posted anymore.

              There was never an Ottawa specific board - Ottawa used to be on the 'Canada' board.
