Sarnia

Sarnia is a city in Southwestern Ontario and had a 2016 population of 71,594. It is the largest city in Lambton County. Sarnia is located on the eastern bank of the junction between the Upper and Lower Great Lakes where Lake Huron flows into the St. Clair River, which forms the Canada–United States border, directly across from Port Huron, Michigan; the site's natural harbour first attracted the French explorer La Salle. He named the site "The Rapids" on 23 August 1679, when he had horses and men pull his 45-ton barque Le Griffon north against the nearly four-knot current of the St. Clair River; this was the first time that a vessel other than a canoe or other oar-powered vessel had sailed into Lake Huron, La Salle's voyage was germinal in the development of commercial shipping on the Great Lakes. Located in the natural harbour, the Sarnia port remains an important centre for lake freighters and oceangoing ships carrying cargoes of grain and petroleum products; the natural port and the salt caverns that exist in the surrounding areas, together with the oil discovered in nearby Oil Springs in 1858, led to the dramatic growth of the petroleum industry in this area.

Because Oil Springs was the first place in Canada and North America to drill commercially for oil, the knowledge, acquired there resulted in oil drillers from Sarnia travelling the world teaching other enterprises and nations how to drill for oil. The complex of refining and chemical companies is called Chemical Valley and located south of downtown Sarnia. In 2011 the city had the highest level of particulates air pollution of any Canadian city, but it has since dropped to rank 30th in this hazard. About 60 percent of the particulate matter comes industries and polluters in the neighbouring United States. Lake Huron is cooler than warmer than the air in winter. In the winter, Sarnia experiences lake-effect snow from Arctic air blowing across the warmer waters of Lake Huron and condensing to form snow squalls over land; the name "Sarnia" is Latin for a British Channel Island. In 1829 Sir John Colborne, a former governor of Guernsey, was appointed Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada. In this capacity, he visited two small settlements in 1835, laid out on the shores of Lake Huron.

One of these, named "The Rapids," consisted of 44 taxpayers, nine frame houses, four log houses, two brick dwellings, two taverns and three stores. The villagers were unable to agree on an alternative; the English settlers favoured the name "Buenos Aires," and the ethnic Scottish favoured "New Glasgow". Sir John Colborne suggested Port Sarnia. On 4 January 1836, the name was formally adopted by a vote of 26 to 16, Colborne named the nearby village Moore after British military hero Sir John Moore. Sarnia adopted the nickname "The Imperial City" on 7 May 1914 because of the visit of Canada's Governor General, H. R. H; the Duke of Connaught, his daughter Princess Patricia. First Nations peoples have lived and travelled across the area for at least 10,000 years, as shown by archaeological evidence on Walpole Island. About A. D. 796, these peoples emerged from an amalgamation of Ojibwa and Potowatami clans, formed the Three Fires Confederacy called the Council of Three Fires. They spoke Algonquian languages, or Anishinaabe, had connections through common elements of cultures.

They developed a self-sufficient society in which tasks and responsibilities were shared among all members. By the time of the 1600s and 1700s, The Three Fires Confederacy controlled much of the area known as the hub of the Great Lakes, which included the Canadian shore where Sarnia is now located. During this time, it maintained relations with many of the First Nations, including the Lakota, the Iroquoian-speaking Huron and Five Nations of the Iroquois League, as well as the colonizing nations of Great Britain and France. Both of the latter nations had colonists and missionaries in North America closer to the Atlantic coasts and related waterways; the Confederacy's trading partners, the Huron, welcomed La Salle and the Griffon in 1679 after he sailed into Lake Huron. The Ontario Heritage Trust erected a historical plaque under the Blue Water Bridge in commemoration of the voyage, as shown in the photo; because of this early encounter with Europeans in the area, the members of the Confederacy helped shape the development of North America throughout the 18th century, becoming a centre of trade and culture.

Britain tried to strengthen relations with the tribes in the area as a set of allies against the French in Quebec and the Illinois Country, the Iroquois, who were based east and south of lakes Ontario and Erie. The people of the Three Fires Confederacy sided with the French during the Seven Years' War with Great Britain, they made peace with Great Britain only after the Treaty of Fort Niagara in 1764. The Confederacy fought on the side of the British during the War of 1812, hoping to expel the Americans from the Great Lakes hub; the Three Fires Confederacy broke several treaties with the United States prior to 1815, but signed the Treaty of Springwells in September of that year and ceased all hostilities directed at the US. The Grand Council survived intact until the middle to late 19th century, when more modern political systems began to develop. Before the War of 1812, the first Europeans in the area were French-Canadian settlers loyal to the British Crown; some traders and families had been in the area east and west of the Detroit and St. Clair rivers since before the British took over this territory.

In this period, Detroit was still within the B
