Robert Fulford on a Lost Art Oasis in Northern Ontario

Joe Hirshhorn's Vision for a Town that Never Was:

"Joe Hirshhorn, a brash young millionaire from New York, came to Canada in 1933 to invest in gold mines. Typically, he announced his arrival with a full-page ad in The Northern Miner headed 'My Name is Opportunity and I Am Paging Canada.'"

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose . . .
