A story no one wants to hear

In telling the history of the village of Temagami, Nugget columnist John Hunt sees no sunrise.

But don't shoot the messenger.

  NORTH BAY NUGGET COLUMN:   What's to become of Temagami?

SEPTEMBER 18, 2012  Seventy attended the Changing of the Season gathering this weekend on Obabika Lake. The twelveth annual ceremony is hosted by Teme-Augama elder Alex Mathias. Above, speaker Second Chief Joe Katt of the Temagami First Nation.

"This was the best gathering since I started hosting," Mathias says. "Joe touched a lot of people. I was honoured to meet Daniel Trask's parents and we had the highest Temagami First Nation attendance of any year."

Daniel Trask went missing last fall (see forum thread).

"I want to thank all those who helped bring this together. Many came early and others stayed late to pitch in. Seeing everyone working together warms my heart."
