    That’s a beautiful house. I’ve met a number of people in Long Branch, to the east of Mississauga, whose fathers built their family homes in the 1930s or 1940s. It’s wonderful to be in touch with you Wally, given your connection to a family home built in Mississauga in the 1940s.

    I very much like the fact that the properties and natural heritage features along that part of the Credit River are now part of a protected cultural landscape – that is, protected, as I understand, under the Ontario Heritage Act. That is a wonderful and ongoing story of preservation of a significant cultural resource.

    The story of the First Nations connection to the land is also strongly of significance, as a key part of the history of the Credit River and of Southern Ontario. It’s wonderful to know of the archaeological investigations that have been conducted in the area, recently and in previous years.
