    Interesting history that I mostly never knew Had no idea that logs were floated down the Riviere des Prairies, less than a mile from where I grew up or that the first guy to do it c.1800 was the founder of what is now Gatineau but was for many decades Hull and that he came from Woburn, Mass, which is now a suburb of Boston Pretty fascinating Also fascinating Nearly 100 years ago, people in the timber industry realized that they were harvesting trees at an unsustainable rate.
