It’s part of the TransCanada Highway network and passes through, or comes very close to, most municipalities in Renfrew County.  All roads may lead to Rome in Europe, but here in Renfrew County, all roads lead to Highway 17. For some of us, Highway 17 is part of our daily commute. Most of us don’t need to travel the Highway daily.  For us that do not travel Highway 17 daily, we still use the highway quite often for trips to Ottawa for medical appointments, shopping, sp ..read more

British history tells us about the Star Chamber, the often-secret court where a group of select elites made judicial decisions designed to favour the Crown without any real or meaningful attempt to present evidence or allow representation.
