Ottawa was declared as the most boring city of Canada at the recent inaugural Boring Awards in Toronto.
Ottawa beat out other nominees, including Laval, Que., Lethbridge, Alta., Abbotsford, B.C. and Brampton, Ont.
A screening of the documentary Boredom, directed by Albert Neremberg, followed the awards. The film claims to document a worldwide epidemic of boredom and share a warning: boredom can kill you.
There were some commendable choices for other awards, including the 64th Annual Tax Conference in Calgary, Alberta, as the most boring event of the year.
“Boring and orderly is the Canadian way,” by former MP Monte Solberg, as published in the Toronto Sun.

Rob Ford, late night television’s newest source of comedic fodder, won the award for the least boring Canadian. Ford beat the Ikea monkey, Peaches, Ryan Gosling and astronaut Chris Hadfield.
