Pogamasing, the story of a northern lake

Andy Thomson's presentation at 2013 Wilderness and Canoeing Symposium
Video Presenter: 
Saturday, February 16, 2013
Year of video/Session: 

Andy Thomson is a retired secondary history teacher who has spent much of his life exploring the Pogamasing area, and has published a book on its history. His presentation will focus on the lake's connection to Canadian history: a HBC fur trade post managed by an Aboriginal chief; the impact of the building of the CPR; the development of the logging industry and a sawmill community during the 1930's; and the unique way the lake has evolved as a seasonal, remote community.
