A decades-old battle over a historic canoe may not be finished just yet.
The town of Atikokan, which dubs itself the Canoe Capital of Canada, has been trying to get their hands on the Ontario Centennial Canoe.
Just who exactly own the canoe, also known as the McGillivray, is unclear. It was originally gifted to the City of Fort William shortly after the 1967 race. The Neebing Voyageurs explained the importance of the vessel to their organization to Thunder Bay City Council back in June.
After hearing their presentation, Mayor Keith Hobbs said it was time to put the issue to rest.
But Atikokan Mayor Dennis Brown says not so fast.He's written mayor Hobbs to ask him to arrange a meeting between Atikokan officials and the Neebing Brigade.
Brown believes the canoe should be preserved and not used on the water.
Brown and others in his community, including one of the original participants of the Centennial Race, want the canoe on display in the Atikokan museum.
