River Run

A group of river enthusiasts grabbed the media spotlight in Timmins on the weekend as they took a journey up the Mattagami River to protest the plan to build a new dam north of Timmins. The Friends of Mattagami River set off on an inflatable raft to ride the river from Timmins to Smooth Rock Falls. The group wants to raise awareness of the plan to build a new hydro dam and generating station on the river.
