All camera owners will love this site. It has in-depth information on countless brands (some that you've probably never heard of) from older 35 mm film format through today's digital world and even larger roll film cameras including 120, 4X5 and sheet film. My personal choice of cameras are the Mamiya RB67 for 120 roll film format and the Nikon D7000 DSLR for digital format. It lists about 99% of all the Nikon bodies and lenses ever made and thoroughly discusses their compatibility with past and present lenses/bodies in an easy-to-read chart form. It also has lots of links to other sites for more information. If you're thinking of buying another camera body or a lens for your present camera body, look here first -

Ontario Out of Doors magazine - your all-in-one guide to great fishing and hunting opportunities -

Power Sport & Marine, North Bay is no longer open for both Polaris ATV snowmobile sales & repairs and Mercury Marine outboard motors. At the current time, there isn't another local dealer to offer these services.

Fur Harvesters Association - A world leader in the sale of wild native North American furs -

ONR - Ontario Northland Railroad - Effective September 28, 2012, McGuinty cancelled all passenger train services to and from northern Ontario. Supposedly, it is being replaced with an "enhanced" bus service but few people can see any enhancement from sitting in a bus in the middle of a traffic jam on Highway 11 for 6 or 8 hours while waiting for the police and medics to scrape up an accident scene due to slippery roads and the associated investigations. However, the bus schedules and rates are still posted at -

Nastawgan Trails - Non-motorized hiking trails throughout the Temagami area -

    New border rules What does it mean for guests?

    There is still a lot of confusion over the announcement made by Immigration Minister, Jason Kenny and MP Greg Rickford recently regarding relaxed admission procedures for guests who have minor criminal records, such as DUIs. A number of tourist operators have circulated notices to their guests that indicate that these past offences are no longer a barrier to admission. This greatly overstates the nature of the actual change that has been made in original documents and with sources in the Canada Border Services Agency (see above).

    The Operational Bulletin for this initiative has been posted outlining the details of the initiative and its application. The full bulletin, www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/manuals/bulletins/2012/ob389.asp does not make all formerly inadmissible guests admissible!
