Documentary on Bruce County

Bruce County | by John Divinski  

The 3-part series aired on TVO in the summer.

As they say in the movie business, "That's a wrap!"

If you haven't seen the 3-part series on the Saugeen Ojibway Territory and Bruce County, as presented in Saugeen Shores and on TVO, you're one of the few who hasn't.

Chair of The Bruce project steering committee, Ross Lamont says over one million people have viewed the series and he's received positive feedback from all over the province.

Speaking to Bruce County Council on January 3rd, Lamont says The Bruce has been in the works since 2016 and $300,000 and 2 years later, three 50-minute parts were completed and aired for the first time last summer on TVO.

Lamont says costs were kept down because all the performers in the series were volunteers and all local or regional.

DVD's of the presentation have been distributed to all schools and libraries for public use.

Copies of the DVD's, along with accompanying books, can also be purchased.

Lamont says there are no plans for his group to develop a sequel to the successful series but that doesn't mean, municipalities, on their own, couldn't further develop a historical film account of its history.

He says his Steering Committee is getting ready to disband now that the project has been completed.
