Gatineau River, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada 12

Description : The Gatineau River flows south to join the Ottawa River.

From the 19th century up until the second half of the 20th century, the river was used to transport logs to sawmills near the mouth of the river. Philemon Wright and his descendants played an important role in the development of the lumber industry in the Gatineau valley. In more recent times, with declining quality in the forests of the region, logs are used for pulp and paper.
