was convicted of trespassing in early 1990 for having protested against logging operations in Temagami, and participated in a peace camp later in the same year in support of native demonstrators in Oka (Oka, Quebec) (''Montreal Gazette'', 22 September 1990), Between the years of 1919 and 1929, Milne lived in Boston Corners and the surrounding areas, focusing his artistic work on the landscape. In 1929, Milne returned to Canada to paint in Temagami, Weston and Palgrave (Palgrave, Ontario). He separated from his wife in 1933, moved to Port Severn, Ontario and sold many of his paintings to prominent art patrons Vincent Massey and Alice Massey. Silcox: David Milne, 39 - 44, 52. In the late 1930s, Milne settled down in Uxbridge, Ontario with Kathleen Pavey, a nurse, and the two had a son (also David) in 1941. During the later years of his life, Milne worked again in watercolours, and changed his subject matter to more whimsical, fantasy and childlike inspirations. He continued to travel to Algonquin Park and Baptiste Lake to paint the Canadian landscape. Silcox: David Milne, 54.

Temagami

'''Temagami''', formerly spelled as '''Timagami''', is a municipality in northeastern Ontario, Canada, in Nipissing District with Lake Temagami at its heart.

The Temagami region is known as n'Daki Menan, the homeland of the area's Aboriginal community, most of whom are Anishnaabe (Ojibwe), living on Bear Island (Bear Island (Lake Temagami)). The official name for this group is the Temagami First Nation. However, a larger group that includes these people, plus non-status residents and some non-residents is called the Teme-Augama Anishnabai.

Some of the main tourist attractions within the community include old-growth red and white pine, Lake Temagami, Caribou Mountain (Caribou Mountain (Temagami)), fishing, showings of Grey Owl from the 1930s, and over 4,000 km of canoe routes.

It is also known as the staging point for cottage vacationing and wilderness canoeing trips on Lake Temagami, in Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater Provincial Park, and vast tracts of wilderness in the area. There are several outfitters here that cater to outdoor activity, including Smoothwater Outfitters and Ecolodge.

The community is home to the Finlayson Point Provincial Park, which itself offers access to Lake Temagami. An excellent view of the entire Temagami area is offered by the Temagami Fire Tower on Caribou Mountain, a renovated high and made of square timber.

The Municipality of Temagami also includes the communities of Lake Temagami, Marten River, and Temagami North (Temagami North, Ontario).
