Since Canada East and Canada West had been united, they have met many times in Kingston, Quebec City, Montreal, and Toronto. However, they thought it might be time to choose a capitol for Canada. Canada West said for it to be in Toronto or London but Canada East disagreed. They thought that perhaps Montreal or Quebec City would be better. In the end, they decided to have Queen Victoria decide. The Queen chose Ottawa as the capitol since it was the only city between Canada East and West.
