Also don't forget that Ottawa (since you mention the case of OLS) by
itself is not the best destination as, despite being the Nation's
Capital, its airport route is barely direct. Most of people will have to
fly through Toronto (YYZ) or Montreal (YUL), and depending in the
airline, they might a non negligible cost to add for this last leg to
Ottawa (YOW).

That said if there is any proposal for Canada (Montreal is IMHO a better
choice than Ottawa), count me in :-)
