Ontario Power Generation (OPG) has leant a supportive helping hand to the Bruce County Historical Society's (BCHS) new documentary video project.

'Bruce County - Southern Ontario's Last Frontier' will be a high definition documentary explaining the local history of the region that will include re-enactments of historical events, interviews, historical photos along with 3D recreations and original music scores.

It is anticipated the documentary will also be a course guide for educators to introduce youth through a 'live' approach to the the history of the region.

BCHS has been partnering with various community organizations and OPG recently stepped forward with a a donation that will bring its total support for the project to $10,000. 

OPG has been a proud corporate member of the community since Ontario Hydro purchased the land around Douglas Point in the 1950ís in order to bring nuclear power to the province.  Since then, the businesses and people employed by the industry now reach back for three generations.
