THE 2023 TORONTO HISTORY LECTURE
Join us for the 12th Toronto History Lecture. This year’s lecture will be: The Tragic Fate of Huron Elliott: A Forgotten Indigenous Worker on Toronto’s Water Tunnel Project
Speaker: Eric Sehr
One of the most ambitious undertakings of the early 1900s was the construction of the Water Supply Tunnel in Toronto’s harbour—also the site of a remarkable archaeological discovery. Speaker Eric Sehr will delve into the unique story of Huron Elliott, a miner from the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, who died with three fellow workers building this essential infrastructure, still in use today.
