Ottawa second-rattiest city in Ontario: Orkin

This is not a rat race Ottawa wants to place well in.

Orkin Canada says our city is the second-rattiest in Ontario.

The pest control company based its findings on the number of rodent treatments it carries out.

That means because our city has a higher population, it's likely going to place higher.

Despite that, Orkin says number one city of Toronto - which has three times as many people - has four times as many rats.

GTA communities Mississauga and Scarborough are numbers three and four.

Hamilton holds the fifth spot.
