Comment from Natalie Grant
People who have never visited Toronto are often unaware that there is actually a chain of small islands in Lake Ontario just offshore from downtown that are called, fittingly, the Toronto Islands. You can get there by taking a ferry from the (again, aptly-named) Ferrydocks.
Sediments flowing from the Niagara River caused the chain, originally a sand spit, to form, and after a massive storm flood in the mid 19th century, the geography was made relatively permanent. Although the City of Toronto owns the land, Canada’s feds have acknowledged the ownership rights of the Mississauga (aboriginal) people, to whom the islands are sacred.
