Fun read

I must recommend The Top 100 Unusual Things To See In Ontario, if only for lines like this:

  1. Also in Prince Edward County and in Ron Brown's book the Lake of the Mountain which has no visible source of water but has a constant source of clean, fresh water. And in Goderich the eight-sided Main Street. The only one in Canada and only the second in North America. The other being Washington, D.C.
