Someone in Ottawa put up a giant billboard to say they're leaving
A YouTuber moved away from her beloved hometown of Ottawa on Thursday and left the city a very, er, unique going-away present.
Elle Mills, who has 1.81 million subscribers on the video platform, plastered a billboard outside of an Ottawa-area T&T; Supermarket with her face — sticking her tongue out and throwing up a peace sign — alongside a special message for the capital.
The billboard reads "Ottawa, sorry I'm leaving you with my brother. I wouldn't forgive me either."

The 21-year-old also made a vlog dedicated to her departure from her parents' home in Canada's capital city, and it has amassed more than 280,000 views in just one day.
In the post, Mills jokingly shows off her favourite places in Ottawa, from her regular sushi spot to the parking lot "where we smoke weed." She also takes a few friends on a surprise trip to see the billboard for the first times and tapes their giggly reactions.
"[Ottawa] might be your typical hometown shithole but it's my hometown shithole, and I wouldn't be who I am without it. Which is why I'm really going to miss it when I'm gone," Mills says to the camera.

Fans responded to the billboard reveal on Twitter by saying things like "this is why you're my favourite person" and "you're such a brilliant dumbass." The fixture will remain up on the southern outskirts of Ottawa near Hunt Club Road and Riverside Drive for an entire month.
