Two boatloads of curious, history-hungry adventurers hit the Ottawa River Sunday morning seeking to catch a glimpse of various sites in Pontiac Bay that are only accessible by watercraft.
Led by the organizers of the Friends of Chats Falls (FCF)) the rabaskas, plus a few extra canoes, explored five sites along the Ottawa River, before returning to the Domaine de Pontiac Village for some further discussion.
“The idea is to showcase for people the rich history of the area,” said Maude-Emmanuelle Lambert, the group’s president. “A good way to do that is to go where the history is.”
Launching from 1061 chemin de la pointe Indienne, FCF members first learned about the history of that spot as a trading post, before continuing to historic sites relating to the logging trade.
