Ontario is another entity created by fleeing Loyalists from the American Revolution, initially called Upper Canada to separate it from French-dominated Lower Canada, or what is now Quebec. It has become the industrialized hinterland of Canada and home to eight million people, most of whom seem to congregate in the vicinity of Toronto. In area, Ontario far exceeds the size of Europe or any American state. Side 1 is dedicated to northern Ontario, a vast region of lakes and rivers, but relatively few people. The Lake of the Woods region was mapped by fur trappers and now forms a watery border between Canada and the USA. Further east, near Thunder Bay, is Old Fort William, the greatest fur fort ever made, and east of that is the Precambrian Shield, the oldest mountains on earth and source of much of the world's mineral wealth. Further east again is Cochrane, site of a polar bear sanctuary and the southern terminus of the only route to Hudson's Bay, by rail. The second side concentrates on the southern portion of Ontario, jutting like a spear into the heartland of the USA while being separated from it by the Great Lakes. This is the site of Ottawa, the nation's capital, Toronto, one of the largest and most vibrant urban areas in North America, Niagara Falls and the historic region of the Niagara Peninsula, Algonquin Wilderness Park, and the rich farmland of much of the region, with Muskoka cottage country dominating the lakes north of Toronto.
