Who victimized dogs on Bear Island?

Late in November the Nugget ran a story on the Temagami First Nation headlined “Politics at play when dogs shot — owner.” Three of Sherwood Becker’s dogs were shot over his opposition, he claimed, to the tribe’s effort to repatriate membership control from the feds.

Plow out of the lake

The snowplow is back on Bear Island after being inched along the bottom of the lake and pulled up on a sand beach near where it went down.

Plow near end of journey

The snowplow is nearly at the shore of Bear Island and will be out of the water today or tomorrow. The vehicle stands in sand and the top can be seen above the ice.

Interactive map series expands

The Twinkle Lake road-access map, the first mapping of this backcountry jumping-off point, continues the expansion of the interactive map series of Temagami.

The series contains a lot of info on canoe routes, hiking trails, historic places, heritage sites and other unique features of the backcountry not found on any other maps.

When things change on the landscape, unlike printed maps, these are updated immediately and frequently thanks to backcountry travellers who  contribute.

The maps are original, made by paddlers who are not trapped by politics. As such these are not subject to errors introduced by cartographers who simply gather data from government agencies. Maps by people who care because we have a stake in every footfall and paddle stroke. What a novel idea.

We encourage everyone, if you have something to add or change, send it to Ottertooth.

Watch for more maps.
