Had the absolute pleasure of chasing Muskie's with Paul this season. Here are a few of the bigger fish pics from our hunts together, I've already posted several of mine. If you're looking for solid blades that giants just can't resist for next season you have to go and check out @pdeezmuskyinlines and talk to Paul ! He has a big sale on right now that ends soon so don't miss out !! #muskyfishing #muskylife #pdeezfish #anglers #ottawariver #omtariofishing #stcroix #shimanofish #50inchapparel

Beaver tail downtown. This one is guarding his pond while the others are served with sugar at the Beavertail shack. He is causing quite a havock so the owner of a nearby house had to install industrial grade chainlink around his trees for protection from this busy beaver.

Inspired by the #DreamCatcher symbolism, this #sculpture —  #ManuelABaez and  #CharlynneLafontaine’s #GatherRing — was installed on the #PortageBridge in September 2017, to mark #Canada150. But this #art, which ever-changing #colours,  is not a permanent display. You can see the #PlaceduPortage complex in #Gatineau in the background.
🇨🇦❤️☮️🌎
“Inspired by the theme of dreaming, The Gather-Ring evokes two symbols deeply rooted in Indigenous traditions: the Tree and the Dream Catcher. It consists of a huge patterned canopy with hand-blown glass pendants representing the Dream Catcher, above a circular cedar base representing the Tree. Benches installed in the centre of The Gather-Ring provide passersby with an inviting place for gathering and reflection, as well as a panoramic view of the #OttawaRiver. The piece was created by architect Manuel A. Baez and artist Charlynne Lafontaine, in consultation with Indigenous groups.
“The Gather-Ring is being exhibited as part of the Art in the Capital program, which adds warmth and vitality to parks, streets and public places in Canada's Capital Region, while showcasing the talent of Canadian artists.
[…]
“The Gather-Ring will be on exhibit until July 2018.
* The benches were constructed from preserved and restored logs recovered from the Ottawa River.
* At nightfall, LED lighting illuminates the artwork.
* An interpretation panel provides explanation for the artwork in Algonquin, English and French.
“Manuel A. Baez is an architect and associate professor at the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University. Charlynne Lafontaine is a glass artist.”

This abandoned #industrial stone building right beside #PortageBridge, the #CarbideBuilding, is just one aspect of #VictoriaIsland’s long history of human occupation. You can see #ParliamentHill in the background of the first photo, and the #NationalArchivesBuilding in the second.

“Thomas "Carbide" Wilson established this mill in 1904. Born in 1860 in Ontario, Thomas Leopold Wilson invented an important process for producing calcium carbide and acetylene gas. He sold the American patent for the process (to a firm which later became the Union Carbide Company), and returned to Canada to establish the Ottawa Carbide Company, building this large stone mill on #VictoriaIsland to produce calcium carbide. The buildings escaped the fire of 1900, but were damaged by fires in 1975 and 1978. The National Capital Commission, which owns the buildings, hopes the buildings will one day be part of a revitalized Victoria Island that will help explain the very interesting history of the site.
“Here was produced #carbide, a class of chemical compound in which carbon is combined with a metallic or semi-metallic element that when mixed with water produces a very bright flame; when this is combined with a reflector, it makes a very efficient light source. With over 60 patents to his name Wilson made a fortune. One patent, for mixing oxygen and acetylene, resulted in a torch that would cut through heavy steel and would revolutionize the industrial world. Another important patent was for a new type of navigational marker, which effectively functioned as a mini-carbide-acetylene factory. It generated its own light and never had to be refilled. Wilson's company, the Marine Signal Company, filled orders from all around the world.”

Seven tipis set the shoreline of the Ottawa River aglow behind @canmushistory. The tipis represent the 7 generations and 7 sacred indigenous teachings. They will be lit each night until the Nimidiwin event on New Year’s Eve so catch them while you can! I saw them on Friday night. #photooftheday #myottawa #quebecoriginal #explorecanada

"The history of the Ottawa River watershed is inseparable from the history of the Algonquin Nation. Though their territory was once considerably more extensive, the Algonquin heartland has always included the entire length of the Ottawa River, from its headwaters in north-central Quebec to its outlet near Montreal. At present, there are ten federally recognized Algonquin communities, with a total population of approximately 8-10,000. Nine of the #Algonquin communities are in Quebec. Proceeding from northwest to southeast, these are the Abitibiwinni, Timiskaming, Eagle Village (Kebaouek), Wolf Lake, Long Point (Winneway), Kitcisakik (Grand Lac), Lac Simon, Mitcikinabik Inik (Algonquins of Barriere Lake) and Kitigan Zibi (River Desert) First Nations. In Ontario, members of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan (at Golden Lake) First Nation make up the only recognized Algonquin community, though three other Ontario First Nation communities, Wahgoshig, Matachewan and Temagami, are of at least partially Algonquin descent.

"… In their own language, Algonquin people call themselves anishinabeg, which carries both the general meaning of “human being”, and the specific meaning of “real (i.e. Indian) people”. "

This is a view of the #OttawaRiver from behind the Supreme Court of Canada, looking toward #VictoriaIsland and both #ChaudièreBridge and – closer – #PortageBridge. The latter bridge is much younger, dating from 1973, and was built to handle the vast increase in daily cross-river commuting as a result of the construction of the #PlaceduPortage and #TerrassesdelaChaudière (seen here on the far right) complexes.  On the far left on Victoria Island, you can see the #CarbideBuilding ruins.

“The Portage Bridge (French: Pont du Portage) crosses the Ottawa River just down-river from the Chaudière Bridge, joining the communities of Gatineau, Quebec and Ottawa, Ontario. It links Laurier Street and Alexandre-Taché Boulevard in the Hull sector of Gatineau and Wellington Street at the Garden of the Provinces and Territories in Ottawa, crossing Victoria Island on the way.
“The bridge was built by the National Capital Commission and opened in 1973. The bridge is named after the historic Portage Trail around the Chaudière Falls and Rapids which ended near the present location of the bridge.”

The #OttawaRiver at #dusk, looking west toward the #ChaudièreBridge from #PortageBridge. You could say this is where Ottawa was born. Long before Europeans had ever been here, #FirstNations had made these islands a major community space. This area of the Ottawa River remains especially sacred to #AlgonquinAnishinabe. Looking at the river’s flow in the evening, it is easy to see why, even with the accumulation of two centuries of industrial pollutants. I don’t have a hope of doing the pre-European history of this area justice here, but the origin of Ottawa’s name may be in reach…
🌊🌎
"It might seem strange that the Kichi sipi, or “great river of the #Algonquins”, is now known as the Ottawa River. But use of the latter name can be traced to the later seventeenth century. When Pierre Radisson passed the Calumet rapids in 1660, he was travelling with a large flotilla of canoes from the upper great lakes who were going down to Montreal to trade. Most were “Ottawak” (as Radisson called them) and other closely related groups. In the seventeenth century, the Odawa (Ottawa) occupied the arc of land between eastern Lake Huron, the Bruce Peninsula, the Manitoulin Island chain and the Straits of Mackinac. There are still large numbers of Odawa people living on Manitoulin Island and in northern Michigan to this day. It has generally been argued […] that the word #Odawa (Ottawa) is a contraction of the Huron word Ondatawwat, meaning “Cheveux Relevés” or “raised hairs”. […] However, it is also possible that Odawa is derived from atawe, the anishnabe word for trader. …"

Walked around the Museum of History this evening, during the snowfall, and got to admire the lit teepees.
The teepee lighting marked the launch of an event that will close out a year of Canada 150 celebrations:  Nimidiwin, A celebration of Our Dance from Coast to Coast, to be held New Year’s Eve.
The teepees, which represent the seven generations and the seven sacred Indigenous teachings, will be lit every evening until the event, making the final 28 days of 2017 a little brighter.

This is an image of the #ChaudièreBridge over the #OttawaRiver made in 1859; it comes from http://data2.archives.ca/ap/c/c002812k.jpg.  Colonel By, who before founding #Bytown used Wright’s Town as a base of operations, had a series of short bridges built here linking #PhilemonWright’s settlement in what is now #Gatineau in Quebec to the Ontario side of the #river.  Although the bridge crosses west of downtown Ottawa and the #RideauCanal, it was where the Ottawa River was filled with small islands which made a crossing possible over the river with a series of short #bridges. 🏛🌊🌉
“The Bridges of the Chaudière Falls:
* The Union Bridge and its successors
* 1828 Wooden arch (Collapsed in 1835)
* 1843 Suspension bridge
Steel truss bridge
* 1920 Steel truss bridge (Current bridge)
“In 1828 a series of stone and wooden bridges across the Chaudière Falls were built under the direction of Lt. Colonel John By. The new bridges would make it easier to bring supplies in from Montreal to support the construction of the Rideau Canal which was just starting. A wooden arch bridge was built ever the main channel of the river while over shorter streams between some rocky islands were built a few stone bridges. The wooden arch bridge lasted until 1835 when damage from March ice flows brought it down. “The wooden arch bridge was replaced in 1843 with a suspension bridge which looked a bit like a rustic version of the Brooklyn or San Francisco bridge. The new bridge had stone tower piers holding the suspension cables and a wagonway stiffened by wooden trusses. The suspension bridge was only 20 feet wide and soon inadequate for the traffic it needed to carry. The engineer for this bridge was Samuel Keefer and in its day it was a major civil engineering achievement for Canada.”

This is an image of the #ChaudièreBridge  over the #OttawaRiver  made in 1859; it comes from http://data2.archives.ca/ap/c/c002812k.jpg. Colonel By, who before founding #Bytown  used Wright’s Town as a base of operations, had a series of short bridges built here linking #PhilemonWright ’s settlement in what is now #Gatineau  in Quebec to the Ontario side of the #river . Although the bridge crosses west of downtown Ottawa and the #RideauCanal , it was where the Ottawa River was filled with small islands which made a crossing possible over the river with a series of short #bridges . 🏛🌊🌉 “The Bridges of the Chaudière Falls: * The Union Bridge and its successors * 1828 Wooden arch (Collapsed in 1835) * 1843 Suspension bridge Steel truss bridge * 1920 Steel truss bridge (Current bridge) “In 1828 a series of stone and wooden bridges across the Chaudière Falls were built under the direction of Lt. Colonel John By. The new bridges would make it easier to bring supplies in from Montreal to support the construction of the Rideau Canal which was just starting.

The #ChaudièreBridge and the surrounding industrial lands on the islands between Gatineau and Ottawa’s Lebreton Flats. Much of this is now being redeveloped, but its past, both #FirstNations and industrial, should be remembered. You could argue that Ottawa is where it is because of the #Chaudière — this geological feature makes this a logical place to link trade routes between the St. Lawrence and beyond to people along the #OttawaRiver system.

"“I think we forget the past,” says Naomi Gadbois, vice-president of the Workers’ History Museum. “We forget where we come from, and that’s dangerous.
"“In a city like Ottawa, we think about the federal government and hi-tech — and hi-tech has proved to be ephemeral— but we need to know that we’re here today because of water and wood. This city would not exist without water and wood, and the hard work of the men, largely, who used those natural resources to build the community that we live in, and live very well in. It’s all due to people picking up tools and doing things, and that’s what we don’t want to lose. That’s what we’re interested in recording and preserving.”"
