Anyone had any issues living in the US but flying internationally out of Canada? We (English green-card holder me + US citizen wife) live in far upstate NY and it seems that flying to London and back out of Ottawa using Air Transat is the cheapest and quickest way.

I'll be in Ottawa for a few days in September (attending RAID 2010). I've never been to Canada before (I'm a European), so I'm planning to stay a few days longer and enjoy the city and/or its surroundings. I'm looking for any recommendations of things to see and do. If anyone is up for a meetup, that would be great as well.
