It looks like the KICKSTARTER project that was underway for the Oak Island Project has been cancelled if you can believe the latest news on the website at

The message says “ Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator about 21 hours ago”, and although no reason was given, it looks like it is no-go for the expedition to Oak Island. 

And finally, the Ontario Heritage Trust is seeking nominations to the Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Awards and Young Heritage Leaders – its annual recognition programs celebrating contributions to heritage conservation. The nomination deadline is September 30, 2015, 

22 Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Awards – representing 335 individuals, one community and three projects – were presented for outstanding achievements to conserving Ontario's heritage in 2014, and 195 youth were recognized through Young Heritage Leaders for their volunteer contributions in 2014.

Until next time, this is what crossed my desk this morning.
