#1 BLS - Geographical Location of Barriere Lake

The Algonquin community of Barriere Lake lies 5 hours to the northwest of Montreal. Travelling on Highway 115, the distance between towns widens as cottage country winds down and logging roads intersect the highway. In the midst of a prime cutting zone sits the Barriere Lake Reserve, created in 1961 without consultation with the community's customary chief and council.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
