    on Dec 17, 2016 in General Interest
    The extraction of massive amounts of stone from the bedrock of southern Ontario for use in construction, landscaping and road-building is expected to increase as the province’s population continues to grow. The Bruce Peninsula has long been a sourc...
  • “Superwoman” is coming

    Some memories are not faded with time. I can still see him, with his charcoal suit, shirt and tie, close-cropped white hair and ruddy complexion, my old high-school history teacher Mr. Greason, pointing at a topographic map of North America he had pu...
  • Reflections on the edge
    on Aug 20, 2016 in General Interest

  • An amazing pace of change in rural Ontario
    on Jul 30, 2016 in General Interest
    To compare moving from Toronto to the Bruce Peninsula 37 years ago to going back to a virtual Stone Age in some respects is taking way too much poetic licence to make a point, to be sure. After all, here where I live, in the secluded little rural com...
  • Coping with drought
    on Jul 29, 2016 in Hope Ness
    I’m going to make a concerted effort to look on the bright side. Okay, so Hope Ness, like the rest of southern Ontario, is in the midst of a prolonged drought. There has been some timely rainfall, but not enough to give the ground a real, good soak...
