As a leading Presbyterian and a Highland gentleman and officer, McLean was a pre-eminent figure in the local community. He was born in St. Andrews (St. Andrews, Ontario) in Upper Canada in 1793, the son of Neil McLean (Neil McLean (judge)). He studied with John Strachan in Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) and later settled on a farm near Cornwall. He served as a lieutenant in the local militia during the War of 1812.

Akwesasne

, New York . Many islands in the St. Lawrence River are part of Akwesasne. Generally the ''Akwesasro:non'' are majority English-speaking in daily use; they have more interaction with the people of Cornwall, Ontario and Massena, which have stronger economies, than the French-speaking towns of Quebec. Government Akwesasne is governed by three bodies: the Mohawk Nation Council of Chiefs (traditional government), the elected Mohawk

in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. An estimated 500 anti-globalists, along with a few Akwesasro:non, challenged the legitimacy of the US Canadian border. Although the Collective successfully and peacefully crossed into Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, they never made it to Quebec City. 2009 border crossing dispute On 1 June 2009, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) border services officers at the Cornwall Port of Entry walked off the job in response to encampments of Akwesasro:non across the road from the customs facility. The latter were protesting Canada's arming of CBSA border services officers. (Akewesasne straddles the boundary of New York and Canada.) Many of the Mohawk men were ironworkers. The women worked at a variety of jobs and created the community for their families. For 50 years, the Mohawk families called their neighborhood "Little Caughnawaga," after the homeland of ''Kahnawake''.

The Mohawk had left the Akwesasne, Kahnawake, and other reservations to rebuild traditional lives. The land dispute (as Altona residents and government objected to the Mohawk claim of sovereignty) has not been fully settled. Gail Landsman, "Ganienkeh: Symbol and Politics in an Indian White Conflict", ''American Anthropologist'', New Series, Vol. 87, No. 4 (Dec., 1985), pp. 826-839, accessed 27 Feb 2010 The action was related to rising Native American activism, and specific land claims being filed by the nations of the Iroquois, which had been forced to cede their historic lands to the state after the American Revolution, as allies of the British (United Kingdom). Some believe that the 1794 Treaty of Canandaigua give them continuing rights to land in the present-day state. At the same time, the founding of Ganienkeh was related to Mohawk local issues, as some families wanted to leave the reservation environment, which they found had problems with substance abuse, among other issues.

Some trips go hiking, canoeing, bicycling, or fishing. Local trips often take days during the week to visit nearby museums or film videos about the community. One annual away trip visits the Akwesasne Native American reservation to engage in community service, and another works with the Habitat for Humanity program.

An estimated 500 anti-globalists, along with a few Mohawk Warriors, challenged the legitimacy of the US Canadian border. The collective never made it to Quebec. He was born in Shodack in Rensselaer County, New York in 1796 and came to Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) with his parents in 1800. In 1806, he settled on Mohawk (Mohawk nation) land at St. Regis (Akwesasne); he became fluent in the language and became an interpreter in the Indian Department. He served during the War of 1812, becoming lieutenant of the St Regis Company of Indian Warriors in 1814. In 1832, he became superintendent at St Regis. Chesley created some controversy in 1835 when he arranged for a schoolmaster to teach there without consulting the Roman Catholic Church. In 1841, he represented Cornwall in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada. He opposed the developed of the Beauharnois Canal which led to some land at St Regis being submerged. He retired from the Indian Department in 1859, having served several times as acting superintendent-general, and returned to Cornwall. In 1860, he was elected mayor of the city. He later moved to Ottawa; in 1872, he became a member of an Anglican (Church of England) society which promoted education for native people. He died at Ottawa in 1880. * Canada: ** St. Regis (St. Regis Mohawk Reservation), Quebec: Part of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River, it is attached by land to the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation in New York State; road access to the rest of Canada is only available through New York State. ** Campobello Island, New Brunswick can be reached by road only by driving through the United States, across the border bridge.

Brockville

and is included with Leeds and Grenville for census purposes only. Known as the "City of the 1000 Islands", Brockville is located on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River opposite Morristown, New York (Morristown (village), New York) about half-way between Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) to the east and Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) to the west and roughly a 50-minute drive south of the national capital of Ottawa. It is one of Ontario's oldest communities and is named after the British general Sir Isaac Brock. History Indigenous peoples lived along both sides of the St. Lawrence River for thousands of years. The first people known to have encountered the Europeans in the area were the St. Lawrence Iroquoians a group distinct from and preceding the Iroquois nations of the ''Haudenosaunee''. While the explorer Cartier (Jacques Cartier) recorded about 200 words in their Laurentian language, they disappeared from the area by the late 16th century. The Iroquois by then used the St. Lawrence Valley as a hunting ground. left thumb Victoria Hall, now the site of Brockville's City Hall, was built in 1862-64 as a concert hall in front and a butchers' market in the rear (File:Brockville - ON - Rathaus.jpg) thumb right Court House Avenue and Soldier's Monument, 1920s (File:Court House Avenue and Soldier's Monument, Brockville, Ontario (1920s).jpg) This area of Ontario was first settled by English (English language) speakers in 1785, when thousands of American (United States) refugees arrived from the American colonies after the American Revolutionary War. They were later called United Empire Loyalists because of their continued allegiance to King George III (George III). The struggle between Britain (Great Britain) and the 13 American colonies (Thirteen Colonies) occurred in the years 1776 to 1783 and seriously divided loyalties among people in some colonies such as New York and Vermont. In many areas traders and merchants such as the coastal cities or the northern border regions had stronger business ties and allegiance to the Crown than did the frontiersmen of the interior. During the 6-year war which ended with the capitulation of the British in 1782 many colonists who remained loyal to the crown were frequently subject to harsh reprisals and unfair dispossession of their property by their countrymen. Many "Loyalists" chose to flee north to the then-British colony of Quebec. Great Britain opened the western region of Canada and allocated land to the mostly English-speaking Loyalists and helped them with some supplies as they founded new settlements. The St. Lawrence River, which separates Brockville and Morristown, New York, was named by French explorers in the 18th century to honour the martyred Roman Christian, Saint Laurentis. In 1785 the first U.E. Loyalist to take up land in Brockville was William Buell Sr. (1751–1832) an ensign disbanded from the King's Rangers, from the state of New York. Residents commonly called the first settlement "Buell's Bay". Around 1810 government officials of Upper Canada designated the village as '''Elizabethtown'''. About 1812 leading residents of the village suggested that the village be renamed to differentiate it and the township of Elizabethtown. The commanding British General in Upper Canada and temporary administrator of the province was Major-General Isaac Brock. He was celebrated as the "Hero and Saviour" of Upper Canada because of his recent success in securing the surrender of Fort Detroit (Fort Shelby (Michigan)). Perhaps to curry favour with Gen Brock certain leading citizens of the village including Charles Jones proposed the name of Brockville. They began using this name in their correspondence and dealings with Isaac Brock. Gen. Brock was soon involved in other battles on the Niagara Peninsula, and on October 13, 1812, he was fatally wounded while leading troops up the heights near the village of Queenston then held by American (United States) militia. A Raid on Elizabethtown occurred on February 7, 1813, when Benjamin Forsyth and 200 men crossed the frozen St. Lawrence River to occupy Elizabethtown and seize military and public stores, free American (United States) prisoners, and capture British (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland) military prisoners. Parks Canada - The War of 1812 The general had been aware of the honour being offered by the residents of Elizabethtown, but had no chance to give it his official blessing before his death. Provincial officials accepted the new name which was soon commonly used by residents and visitors. In 1830 the population of Brockville had managed to exceed the 1000 mark. This entitled it to be represented by its own elected member in the House of Assembly. Henry Jones (Henry Jones (Upper Canada politician)), the village postmaster, was elected in October 1830 to the 11th Parliament of the Province. Brockville became Ontario's first incorporated (incorporated town) self-governing town on January 28, 1832, two years before the town of Toronto. By means of the Brockville Police Act passed by the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada Brockville was given the right to govern its own affairs, pass laws and raise taxes. The first elections for the new Board of Police were held on April 2, 1832 to elect four members to the Board. These four in turn chose a fifth member, Daniel Jones, who also became the first Police Board president or Mayor of Brockville. In March 1836 he became the first native Upper Canadian to receive a knighthood and became "Sir Daniel Jones". In the 19th century the town became a local centre of industry including shipbuilding, saddleries, tanneries (Tanning), tinsmiths, a foundry, a brewery, and several hotels. By 1854, a patent medicine industry had sprung up in Brockville and in bordering Morristown (Morristown (village), New York), NY featuring products such as "Dr Morse's Indian Root Pills", "Dr. McKenzie's Worm Tablets" and later, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People". thumb The south portal of the Brockville Railway Tunnel Brockville Tunnel (File:Brockville - ON - Railway Tunnel.jpg), Canada's first railway tunnel, opened in 1860 In 1855, Brockville was chosen as a divisional point of the new Grand Trunk Railway between Montreal and Toronto. This contributed to its growth as it could offer jobs in railway maintenance and related fields. At the same time, the north–south line of the Brockville and Ottawa Railway was built to join the St. Lawrence River ship route with the timber trade of the Ottawa Valley. A well-engineered tunnel for this railway was dug and blasted underneath the middle of Brockville. The Brockville Tunnel was the first railway tunnel in Canada. Brockville and many other towns in Canada West became involved in the threatened Fenian invasion after the American Civil War in 1865. In June 1866 the Irish-American "Brotherhood of Fenians" invaded Canada. They launched raids across the Niagara River into Canada West and from Vermont into Canada East. Canadian Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald called on the volunteer militia companies in every town to protect Canada. The Brockville Infantry Company and the Brockville Rifle Company (now The Brockville Rifles) were mobilized. The unsuccessful Fenian Raids were a catalyst that contributed to the creation of the new Dominion of Canada in 1867. By 1869, Brockville had a population of 5000 and a station on the Grand Trunk Railway. It was the County Town of the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and a port of Entry. Steamers stopped in Brockville daily while plying between Montreal, Kingston, Toronto and Hamilton. The Brockville and Ottawa Railway connected Brockville with Smith's Falls, Perth, Almonte, Carleton Place and Sandy Point. During the summer, a steam ferry plied every half hour between Brockville and Morrisburg New York. The province of Ontario gazetteer and directory. H. McEvoy Editor and Compiler, Toronto : Robertson & Cook, Publishers, 1869 In 1962 Brockville was granted official status as a city. Its coat of arms featured a beehive surrounded by a golden chain and bears the motto ''Industria, Intelligentia, Prosperitas''. This is an official heraldic design. Brockville is one of the few cities that has a recognized heraldic flag. Climate

features local amateur and professional talent. Known as the "City of the 1000 Islands", Brockville is located on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River, directly opposite Morristown, New York (Morristown (village), New York), about half-way between Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) in the east and Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) in the west, and roughly a 40-minute drive to the national capital of Ottawa. It is one of Ontario's oldest urban centres, and is named after the British general Sir Isaac Brock. Brockville is at the downstream end of the world-famous Thousand Islands, which extend as far as Kingston, Ontario (at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River at Lake Ontario), 80 km away. There are several institutions, localities, thoroughfares, and landforms named in honour of him in Canada. Significant monuments to Wolfe in Canada exist on the Plains of Abraham where he fell, and near Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Ontario Governor John Graves Simcoe named Wolfe Island (Wolfe Island (Ontario)), an island in Lake Ontario and the Saint Lawrence River off the coast of Kingston (Kingston, Ontario), near the Royal Military College of Canada, in Wolfe's honour in 1792. On 13 September 2009, the Wolfe Island Historical Society led celebrations on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of James Wolfe's victory at Quebec. A life-size statue in Wolfe's likeness is to be sculpted. Greene began acting while attending Queen's University in Kingston (Kingston, Ontario), where he also acquired a knack for broadcasting with the Radio Workshop of the university's Drama Guild on the campus radio station CFRC. He gave up on a career in chemical engineering and, upon graduation, found a job as a radio broadcaster (broadcasting) for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Only one first rate has survived to the present. HMS ''Victory'' (HMS Victory), Vice-Admiral Nelson's (Horatio Nelson) flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, is preserved at HMNB Portsmouth as an active warship in commission.

In fact he was leading before he blew an easily won game against a tail ender; this would have been his greatest victory. Ivkov shared 2nd-3rd places in the Yugoslav Championship at Titograd (Podgorica) 1965 with 11.5 18 as Gligoric won. Then at Zagreb 1965, Ivkov scored perhaps his most impressive career victory, sharing the title with Wolfgang Uhlmann on 13.5 19, ahead of World Champion Tigran Petrosian, Lajos Portisch, Larsen, and Bronstein. Ivkov won at Venice 1966 with 5 7. He ended 4th at Beverwijk 1966 on 10 15 as Polugaevsky won. Ivkov won at Eersel 1966 with 4 5. He had a disappointing result at the elite Piatigorsky Cup tournament at Santa Monica, California, finishing with a minus score, as Spassky won. But then he nearly won the 1966 Open Canadian Chess Championship at Kingston (Kingston, Ontario). He shared 3rd-4th at Sarajevo 1966 with 10 15, behind winners Mikhail Tal and Dragoljub Ciric. He was 4th at Palma de Mallorca 1966 with 9.5 15 behind winner Tal. The Queen’s Principalship (1936-1951) After nearly eight years as the President of the University of Alberta, Robert Wallace was offered the Principalship at Queen’s University in Kingston (Kingston, Ontario), Ontario by chancellor James Richardson. Wallace accepted the offer, and was installed as the University’s eleventh Principal on September 1, 1936. He was the first scientist to ever hold the position. (Nine of the previous 10 Principals were ministers, the other was a Classics professor.) He would hold the position until his formal retirement in 1951. *Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band (Burnaby, BC (British Columbia)) *Rob Roy Pipeband and Highland dancers (Kingston (Kingston, Ontario), Ontario) *Rocky Mountain Pipe Band (Calgary, Alberta) In 2000, Corus Entertainment acquired the stations. In February 2001, Corus converted CKDO to its short-lived talk radio network (also consisting of CHML (CHML (AM)) in Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario), CFPL (CFPL (AM)) in London (London, Ontario), CKRU in Peterborough (Peterborough, Ontario), CFFX (CFFX-FM) in Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) and CJOY in Guelph), but the station returned to the oldies format by the summer of that year. On the outbreak of the War of 1812 he joined the 2nd Regiment of York Militia as a Subaltern and was seriously wounded at the Battle of Queenston Heights. He crawled from the battlefield to a nearby village where his wounds were hurriedly dressed. Because of an infection caused by the late removal of a bullet he was not fit to fight when the Americans attacked York in April, 1813. McLean buried the York militia’s colours in the woods and escaped to Kingston, Ontario. He fought again at Battle of Lundy's Lane, but was captured by the Americans and held prisoner for the remainder of the war. He was born in Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) in Upper Canada in 1791, the son of a Scottish (Scotland) immigrant who served with Joseph Brant during the American Revolution. The family moved from Kingston to Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) and then York (Toronto), where Thomson began work as a clerk in a general store. In 1810, he was transferred to Kingston. Although a member of the local militia, he did not serve in the War of 1812 due to poor health. In 1815, his employer returned to France and Thomson purchased the Kingston store. In 1819, he became editor and owner of the ''Upper Canada Herald'', a weekly newspaper, which soon had the largest circulation of any newspaper in Upper Canada. He also printed pamphlets, books and reports, including ''The statutes of the province of Upper Canada'' in 1831. He was born in New Jersey in 1785 and later settled in Nelson Township (Nelson, Ontario), Halton County (Halton County, Ontario). He founded a settlement called Hannahville with his brothers, help set up the first school in the area and served on the district council. In 1828, he was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada for Halton as a Reformer (Reform Party (pre-Confederation)); he did not run in 1830 but was reelected in 1834. He was elected to the 1st Parliament of the Province of Canada in East Halton. He opposed the move of the capital from Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) to Montreal. In 1841, he supported the District Councils Act (District Councils Act (1841)), which was opposed by the other Reformers. He also expressed his disapproval after the Reform government resigned in protest in 1843. So, another Reform candidate was chosen to run in East Halton in 1844; when Hopkins ran as well, the vote was split and the Conservative (Conservative Party of Canada (historical)) candidate, George Chalmers, won. In 1850, he was elected again in East Halton as a Clear Grit, defeating the incumbent Reformer, John Wetenhall. After 1851, he retired from politics. He moved to Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario) in 1870. Follow-up reports indicate that rumbles could be felt as far as Kingston, Ontario (w:Kingston, Ontario), Montreal, Quebec (w:Montreal) and New York (w:New York). The Canadian Geological Survey stated 14 seismometer (w:Seismometer) stations revising a magnitude of 4.5 from 2.99 on the Richter Scale (w:Richter_magnitude_scale). The USGS pronounced it to be a 4.0 tremor.

As of October 2005 logos with the stations' callsigns are no longer used on CTV stations; instead they all use the main CTV logo. (File:CJOH-TV.jpg) From 1990 to 1997, the station was co-owned with Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario)-based CHRO-TV, which was for the majority of that period a CTV affiliate for the Upper Ottawa Valley. In 1997, as part of a major trade, CHRO was transferred to CHUM Limited, and became a NewNet (later A-Channel (A (TV system))) station primarily serving Ottawa. In 2007, CTVglobemedia received Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approval to acquire CHUM; while CTV did not originally plan to keep A-Channel, it decided to do so following a CRTC requirement to sell the Citytv system. This once again made CJOH and CHRO sister stations in a market with only one other local English-language station, CBOT (CBOT (TV)). Interestingly, while the CRTC forced the Citytv sale because of concerns about media concentration with multiple stations in the same city, it had no problem allowing the Ottawa twinstick, apparently due to the precedent set by the stations having common ownership in the 1990s. From west to east, the major Ottawa Valley communities are Mattawa (Mattawa, Ontario), Deep River (Deep River, Ontario) (with nearby Chalk River (Chalk River, Ontario), the site of Canada's nuclear reactor program), Petawawa (Petawawa, Ontario) (a major Canadian military base), Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario) (where Samuel de Champlain landed briefly), Fort Coulonge (Fort Coulonge, Quebec), Shawville (Shawville, Quebec), Renfrew (Renfrew, Ontario), Quyon (Quyon, Quebec), Arnprior (Arnprior, Ontario), Ottawa (the nation's capital), Rockland (Rockland, Ontario), L'Orignal (L'Orignal, Ontario), Hawkesbury (Hawkesbury, Ontario), and Rigaud (Rigaud, Quebec). On January 30 a memorial service (funeral) was held in Pembroke, Ontario. Among the 1,000+ in attendance was Governor General (Governor General of Canada) Adrienne Clarkson. Murphy's body was taken the following day to Conception Harbour (Conception Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador), Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador), for his funeral February 3. The experiment was successful enough that CHUM replicated CKVR's format on several stations it had acquired from Baton Broadcasting in 1997, including CHRO (CHRO-TV) in Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario), CFPL (CFPL-DT) in London (London, Ontario), CKNX (CKNX-TV) in Wingham (Wingham, Ontario), and CHWI (CHWI-DT) in Windsor (Windsor, Ontario). Most of these stations were also former CBC affiliates, and all were in markets where CKVR's sister station, CITY-TV, were already available on basic cable. CIVI (CIVI-DT) in Victoria, British Columbia was added into the system by CHUM at its launch in October 2001. * London (London, Ontario), Ontario: CFPL (CFPL-DT) * Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario) Ottawa, Ontario: CHRO (CHRO-TV) * Wheatley (Wheatley, Ontario) Windsor (Windsor, Ontario), Ontario: CHWI (CHWI-DT) Early life Martin was born in Ottawa, Ontario, the son of Lumina (née Chouinard) and Joseph Philippe Ernest Martin.
