This is a video of driving from the Highway 401/416 interchange (around 360 km east of Toronto) to Ottawa/Gatineau. Gatineau is a city located directly across the Ottawa river, in the French-speaking province of Quebec. Ottawa is located in Ontario and (for the unenlightened) is the capital of Canada.
The drive begins on Highway 401 (eastbound), then onto Highway 416 (majority of the video), then finally onto Highway 417, which is part of the Trans-Canada Highway. Upon arrival, the video also includes a brief drive through Ottawa and then Gatineau.
Notice the significant change in the style of traffic lights as one crosses from the province of Ontario (Ottawa) to Quebec (Gatineau). I find the Quebec lights to be somewhat amusing :)
The whole drive is around 90 km in length, and is sped up approximately 7 times.
This video (and several others following this one) were made by my new cheap miniDV camera. I still haven't figured out a decent mount, so the video includes lots of shaking and some zoom mishaps, so don't expect top notch quality.
The music is:
