Canada: visa and what to do in Ottawa

I hate Canadian embassy. They do annoying personal search at entry, so they obviously care about _their_ security... and completely ignore yours. How hard is it to get someone else's passport? Very simple. You only have to know his name.

Anyway, does someone have any ideas what to do in Ottawa? I'm not sure if I'll be able to move outside area serviced by public transport... Some horses would be nice, but I guess that would require a car :-(.

And... I actually managed to get battery sensing code into quite usable state on collie. I even measured internal battery resistance (~1Ohm, unfortunately it changes with battery charge :-(); that should enable better measurements with different backlight levels. It would be nice if someone calibrated temperature sensors. (Changes should get into linux-z git tree overnight).
