The Parliament Hill that dare not speak its name

 Oh, crap: I thought we were supposed to meet at Parliament Hill Donuts.


From the Parliament Hill Act, Statutes of Canada 1972, Chapter 11
"No person shall use the words "Parliament Hill" in combination (a) to describe or designate a property, place, site or location in the National Capital Region other than the area of ground in the City of Ottawa bounded by Wellington Street, the Rideau Canal, the Ottawa River and Bank Street, (b) to identify any goods, merchandise, wares or articles for commercial use or sale, or (c) in association with a commercial establishment providing services."
From the song "Parliament Hill" (1972) by Nova Scotia's Angus Walker, "Canada's Prime Minister of Country Music:"
"It was party after party/Until we couldn't pay our bills/I hated it there/On Parliament Hill."
