I encourage everyone to watch this video created by local resident and historian Nathan Tidridge on Waterdown’s Souharissen Natural Area.
The Souharissen Natural Area covers 55 acres in the Village of Waterdown, and is the result of years of work following the discovery of 104 Aboriginal archeological sites in the Waterdown Bay Development Area in 2005.
I was pleased to champion this project since its inception, providing unflagging support.
It was jointly dedicated by the Hon. David C. Onley, 28th Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, and Chief M. Bryan Laforme of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation on August 21st, 2014. Over 50 people joined me in attending the dedication including David Sweet MP, Elder Carolyn King, United Empire Loyalists, and other members of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
In the video, learn more about this special area and the Treaty relationships, and responsibilities, it embodies.
