Daily Miner and News, February 15, 2005: "Although the website does have fact checkers, the downside to the site is information can still be incorrect at times. For example, someone wrote that Kenora was founded on gold. In fact it was formed through trading posts and missionaries (the two gold rushes came later). Anyone who picks up incorrect information can change it to make it accurate."
Rat Portage Boundary Dispute
Hi, I'm a BCer interested in Western political geography and dropped by on a search for "Rat Portage" as this was the name of a boundary controversy concerning the devolution of the NWT into expanded Manitoba and Ontario, I'm not sure in which year. Manitoba had been 'promised' the Kenora-Lakehead region, as far as Lake Nipigon I think, but the heavyweights in southern Ontario intervened because of the rich resources of the area and out-clouted Manitoba. The account of this I read was in Canadian Geographic Magazine many years ago; I'm wondering if any of you Kenora-ites (Kenorans?) know anything about this and how/if it should be mentioned in the history section here.Skookum1 21:36, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
I created the Infobox for the article, however I used the filename for the map that was already on the page. Putting that in the Infobox causes it to print twice. I don't know how to do the fancy maps with the pushpins yet... so can someone fix the map? --Jimj wpg 06:15, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
The Anicinabe Park should be mentioned. Badagnani 19:59, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
Lake of the Woods Milling company
Back in the Keewatin days, the Lake of the Woods Milling Company – an iconic Canadian flour producer – originated the "Five Roses" flour brand there. Seems like there should be some mention of this history, but I know little more about it. Anyone?
