A while back, when Evite first came online (and before I developed an irrational dislike for them) one was drafted for an event that ultimately never happened. (Kid’s Choice Awards party) Since everyone already knew where I lived (parents) I thought it would be humorous to list the location as some remote faraway backwater. A few minutes of Mapquesting landed me in the down of Moosonee, a little town in the backyard of
Yes, yes, all in good fun, I’m so hilarious.
But in the years since, Moosonee has occupied a fond little spot in the greyest of my grey matter. But the town’s website has been removed or is under construction or some such nonsense. So in a way to make up for a perceived wrong, here’s my little tribute to a town that was once the butt of a lame joke that I never told. Perhaps one day I’ll make the trek and have a tasty Chinese dinner.
But first, I would be remissed to mention the website of Paul Lantz who seems to have spent much of the past few years chronicling the town’s goings-on. He takes some pretty beautiful shots and it’s also a good place to start for a little history of the place.

- Moosonee has even inspired the giants of Canadian literature! Though the review seems rather harsh.
And much more!
There doesn’t seem to be a website for the Chamber of Commerce or Tourism Board but I would like to suggest a slogan for the town. I think Moosonee is Moosoneat! would be one that Urban Outfitters could really run with. Cuz making fun of
