John Ralston Saul’s new book is very good news for those wanting to understand the future of Springwater Park.

To explain Canada’s fundamental Métis  past, read Sauls’ A Fair Country.

Penguin JRS1

I suggest his The Comeback will go a long way to explaining our future and how Springwater Park fits within this important national dialogue.

It’s nice to see the Springwater Township and Simcoe County flags flying in Springwater Park in 2013.

So the Township of Springwater and County of Simcoe flags displaced the NATO and United Nations flags from 2012 to 2013, then?


See above the flags that were flown in the 2012 Remembrance Day at Springwater Park: NATO, Canada, Ontario, and United Nations. First time an official ceremony in +30 years, btw.

The ladies proudly fly the Canadian and Ontario flags, as well as the Métis (left) and Inuit at the main pavilion in Springwater Park – Camp Nibi.

United Nations

But the United Nations flags is always there because of UNIDRIP.United Nations front

Note how the Anishinabe (left) and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Confederacy, Six Nations) First Nations flags were given the place of honour next to the UN flag?

I love flags and I’m not alone in knowing flag protocol is important.
