Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

What is Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario known for?


centuries+political

. Modern Franco-Ontarians are instead descended primarily from people who moved to Ontario from Quebec or New Brunswick in the 19th and 20th centuries. Political aspects In the late 1980s, several Ontario towns and cities, most famously Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario), were persuaded by the Alliance for the Preservation of English in Canada to declare themselves ''English-only'' in the wake of the ''French Language Services Act'' and the Meech Lake Accord debate. This was considered by many observers to be a direct contributor to the resurgence of the Quebec sovereignty movement in the 1990s, and consequently to the 1995 Quebec referendum (Quebec referendum, 1995).(See also Sault Ste. Marie language resolution.) '''Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds''' Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario), Ontario, Canada Essar Centre The '''Ojibwe''' (also '''Ojibwa''' or '''Ojibway''') or '''Chippewa''' (also '''Chippeway''') are among the largest groups of Native Americans (Native Americans in the United States)–First Nations north of Mexico. They are divided between Canada and the United States. In Canada, they are the second-largest population among First Nations, surpassed only by Cree. In the United States, they had the fourth-largest population among Native American tribes, surpassed only by Navajo (Navajo Nation), Cherokee and the Lakota (Lakota people). Because many Ojibwe were historically formerly located mainly around the outlet of Lake Superior, which the French (French people) colonists called Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario), they referred to the Ojibwe as '''Saulteurs'''. Ojibwe who subsequently moved to the prairie provinces of Canada have retained the name '''Saulteaux'''. Ojibwe who were originally located about the Mississagi River and made their way to southern Ontario are known as the '''Mississaugas.''' The '''Soo Thunderbirds''' are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario), Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. With the Soo Greyhounds and Soo Thunderbirds playing out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Sault business man Domenic Sacco knew that surrounding communities would jump at the chance of seeing high-calibre hockey in their hometowns on a regular basis. Thus the reintroduction of the Thessalon Flyers in the small farming community of Thessalon, Ontario. With a competitive talent pool being sought by teams such as the Thunderbirds and nearby Soo Indians and Blind River Beavers, Sacco knew that drawing a competitive team would be difficult. Offering to cover transportation costs to and from surrounding areas, players from all over the north shore of Lake Huron combined to make the 2003-2004 Thessalon Flyers. Of these players included former Great North Midget League players Lucas Bedell and Thessalon native Jason Bird. Failing to pay for ice fees in Thessalon, coupled with failed sponsorhip deals, left the coffers of the team nearly empty and players left town, leaving the team not nearly as competitive as originally anticipated. Despite this setback, the Flyers went on to the NSHL final, losing four games to one to the Wawa Travellers. Players upset with the lack of team travel for the first two games of the series in Wawa sent management a message by refusing to report to practice the following week and neglected to show up for the next two games of the final series resulting in forfeiture of the title, and a hefty suspension levied on team owner and general manager Sacco by the Northern Ontario Hockey Association. The team has yet to return to Thessalon, as a league to play in no longer exists. A resident of Elliot Lake, Ontario for almost fifty years, in the 1970s, Dixon worked as a reporter for the ''Sault Star'' newspaper in Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario). The author of several short stories (short story), her 1996 book ''The Power and the Promise'' is a historical reference for the city of Elliot Lake. * Quesnel, British Columbia - Shaw TV Quesnel * Sault Ste.

In the buildup to the 2007 provincial election (Ontario general election, 2007), Rodriguez joined with four other Northern Ontario mayors to prepare a pre-election paper that addressed issues of concern to the region, such as infrastructure renewal and water safety. Like his predecessor, Rodriguez argued that he and his colleagues would have more influence by working in a collaborative manner. The other mayors were from Timmins, North Bay (North Bay, Ontario), Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario) and Thunder Bay. See "Northern Ontario mayors to join forces to bring concerns into provincial spotlight", ''Canadian Press'', 9 February 2007, 09:54. He later issued a "Report of the Advisory Panel on Municipal Mining Revenues" in 2008, calling on the province of Ontario to use revenue from the provincial mining tax for infrastructure projects in mining communities. The document was unveiled in Timmins. See Keith Lacey, "Mining communities to seek more financial stability from province", ''Timmins Daily Press'', 6 May 2008, A3. During the election campaign itself, Rodriguez attracted controversy by attending the opening of Liberal (Liberal Party of Ontario) candidate Ron Dupuis' campaign office in Nickel Belt (Nickel Belt (provincial electoral district)). Dupuis was the deputy mayor of the city, and Rodriguez's presence led to conflicting claims about whether he was formally endorsing his candidacy. He later clarified that he was not endorsing any candidate. Rachel Punch, "Dupuis, Rodriguez disagree - sort of", ''Sudbury Star'', 12 September 2007, A3. birth_place residence Sault Ste.

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

'''Sault Ste. Marie''' ( "Soo Saint Marie") is a city on the St. Marys River (St. Marys River (Michigan-Ontario)) in Algoma District, Ontario, Canada. It is the third largest city in Northern Ontario, after Sudbury (Greater Sudbury) and Thunder Bay.

While there is some debate on the exact meaning of "Sault" in Sault Ste. Marie, scholars of early French note that the word translates into ''jump'', referring to the place where one needs to "jump", or put into the St. Mary’s River. This translation relates to the treacherous rapids and cascades of the St. Mary's River, which descend more than 20 feet from the level of Lake Superior to the level of the lower lakes. Hundreds of years ago, this prohibited boat traffic and required an overland portage from one lake to the other. Thus the entire name translates to "Saint Mary's Rapids" or "Saint Mary's Falls". The word ''sault'' is pronounced

Sault Ste. Marie is bordered to the east by the Rankin (Rankin Location 15D, Ontario) and Garden River (Garden River 14, Ontario) First Nation reserves, and to the west by Prince Township (Prince, Ontario). To the north, the city is bordered by an unincorporated portion of Algoma District (Unorganized North Algoma District), which includes the local services boards (local services board (Ontario)) of Aweres (Aweres, Ontario), Batchawana Bay (Batchawana Bay, Ontario), Goulais and District (Goulais and District, Ontario), Peace Tree (Peace Tree, Ontario) and Searchmont (Searchmont, Ontario).

The city's census agglomeration, including the townships of Laird (Laird, Ontario), Prince (Prince, Ontario) and Macdonald, Meredith and Aberdeen Additional and the First Nations reserves (Indian reserve) of Garden River (Garden River, Ontario) and Rankin (Rankin Location 15D, Ontario), had a total population of 79,800 in 2011.

Sault Ste. Marie is the seat of the Algoma District.

To the south, across the river, is the United States and the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The two cities are joined by the International Bridge (Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge), which connects Interstate 75 on the Michigan side and Huron Street (and former Ontario Secondary Highway 550B) on the Ontario side. Shipping traffic in the Great Lakes system bypasses the Saint Mary's Rapids via the American Soo Locks, the world's busiest canal in terms of tonnage that passes through it, while smaller recreational and tour boats use the Canadian Sault Ste. Marie Canal.

Established as one settlement (Cross-border town naming) by Jesuit missionaries (Jesuit Missions in North America) in the 17th century, the two ''saults'' remained so until after the War of 1812. "Sault Ste. Marie – history" , The North View, accessed 20 Dec 2008
