Rainbow Country

Just to date myself... the first time I heard of Manitoulin Island was on the old TV show, Rainbow Country. Remember that? It was on CBC and filmed on and around the island. I actually became good friends with one of the stars later on while working for the Hudson's Bay Company up at Mistassini Lake, Quebec. Buckley Petawabano was his name and he also starred in a CBC movie called "Cold Journey" as well as in many other presentations. Anyone else remember this show?

Manitoulin Island

We recently moved to Manitoulin and built ourselves a small retirement home. Now, just to pass the time I have started a web site located at and plan to use it to promote all activities and happenings on the island.

Drop by and take a look, make a comment, send in your event, post a classified ad, criticize, suggest, and just generally participate in what I hope will be YOUR web site, not just mine. I'd like to have a listing of all people and businesses on the island and links to any web sites so drop me an e-mail with your information.

In short, I'd like "OUR MANITOULIN!" to be everyone's first choice when looking for information on our great area. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
