Ottawa is very colder in winter than Vancouver. - It's redundant. Never combine "very" with a comparative adjective. Please remember this syntax:

Noun (subject) + verb + comparative adjective + than + noun (object).

Hence, the second sentence is correct:

Ottawa is much colder in winter than Vancouver.
