Amazon received 238 proposals from cities who want to be the home of the company’s second headquarters, including Ottawa! If you were wondering where the possible facility would be built in the nation’s capital, the answer is in the video below.

Seriously though, just hold some hot, fresh and delicious BeaverTails under the noses of those Amazon executives and they’ll be sure to pick Ottawa for the home of it’s second headquarters!
