It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and A.J. Casson’s painting entitled “The Entrance to Baie Fine” has come to speak volumes about Falconbridge’s commitment to environmental protection. In this 1947 watercolour, the Group of Seven artist depicted the sunny, hummocky entrance to Baie Fine, in the North Channel of Georgian Bay, just east of Manitoulin Island and near Killarney Provincial Park. In the foreground is a silica-rich mountain, known today as Casson Peak, which, until recently, faced the prospect of being mined out by Falconbridge for glass manufacturing. But it was not to be.
