In addition to have a new capital there was a need to have a seat of the government that was protected from attack from the Americans, As a result Ottawa was chosen, as the nation’s capital.

We cannot do so in reality. Emotions, thoughts, intents, and the way another human being organizes and attaches meaning to the wider world are inconceivable to the individual who is not experiencing them (Patton, 1990)....   [tags: Interview, Semi-structured interview]
