Southern Ontario ranges from the extremely wealthy to the very poor. There are industry owners in castles and migrant workers who have no rights, no land and in wage slavery shacks living beside each other.

A particularly loaded place, a place of major importance, is North Buxton. North Buxton is one of the terminuses of the Underground Railroad with a major historic site preserved in this small community. Also adjacent is a major oil field and a windfarm. Following is video of a couple derricks, one right on the edge of lake Erie, and a wind farm. Following are photos of some of the places in North Buxton, but not the school or museum. You will have to go there yourself. It is 5 minutes off of the 401, just outside of Chatham.

Pardon the sound and the shake – this was filmed on a small point and shoot.
