The backend of the President's Suites in Haileybury
Temiskaming was once one of the most important and lucrative mining centres in the world. It was a rugged frontier where enterprising young men made quick fortunes. As the wealth of the community grew, so too did its cultural attractions, becoming known for a wide variety of theatre and architecture. Two of Temiskaming’s communities, Cobalt and Haileybury, proudly display the scars and splendour wrought by their mining heritage. In some ways, the former still has the authentic hardscrabble identity of a blue collar community, with modest homes and remnants of mining life on full display (including head frames and deep scars in cliff faces from blasting). The latter town showcases the lavish lifestyles of the mine owners, who used their wealth to create architectural gems that…
Get Your Paddle On—Canoeing for All Abilities in Temagami
What is more Canadian than a canoe? It’s at once an ingenious invention of First Nations people, a quiet and surprisingly effortless mode of water transport, and an enduring symbol of our connection to our beautiful wilderness. Ontario is unusually blessed when it comes to canoe habitat, with a quarter of a million lakes (not to mention rivers) dotting the province. If you ask any canoeing expert for their must-visit northern canoe locales, they will without a doubt mention at least one spot in Temagami. With eagle-eye panoramas from the fire tower, a variety of accommodation options, over 1,000 canoe routes, and knowledgeable outfitters, Temagami is a great place for canoers of all abilities. Whether you’re looking to introduce the next generation of the family to some…
Double Header—Wolf Mountain and Blue Lagoon
It might be winter time and you have just visited Wolf Mountain one of the finest vistas in Northeastern Ontario. Come back for another look and maybe a swim at a place that is almost “paradise.”  People often ask where a really neat place to go swimming is. Not a beach but a good ‘ole swimming hole. It is often a difficult question to answer as each location has its own attraction. But Paradise or “Blue” Lagoon comes to mind as it creates an image as a special back roads destination. The word paradise is a religious or metaphysical term for a place in which existence is positive, harmonious and eternal. It is a place of contentment. (There was a 1958 movie, called ‘Paradise Lagoon,’ a wonderful story…

"A timeless experience unchanged by the passage of time..." Snowshoe the abundance of Sault Ste. Marie's wilderness terrain, forests, frozen lakes, water falls, along with a mix of off-trail hiking for the best taste of winter in the city! "Snowshoes "float" on top of deep snow by distributing the weight of the walker across the surface. Many anthropologists believe a basic snowshoe with this function allowed early humans to migrate across the top of the globe from central Asia to Canada, where Aboriginal groups eventually created and perfect hundreds of snowshoe designs. Most of Canada's first snowshoes were carved from birch or hard ash that was soaked or steamed to become pliable and then constructed using stretched animal skin and…

Stack brings the return of a brewery to Sudbury
I was sitting in Greater Sudbury’s Fionn MacCool’s with some co-workers of mine when I first tasted a Stack beer. I was in the mood to try something new, and this restaurant has a large selection, so I asked the waitress what she had on tap. After listening to her spout her knowledge of a local brewery, I decided to try Valley Girl, a traditional German-style wheat beer, which is just one of a variety of creatively named beers produced by Stack Brewing. If you’re familiar with Sudbury, you might understand the cultural references to the beer names, such as how the “Valley” is a nickname for the Valley East area within the City of Greater Sudbury. Even the name…
