Heard Up North: movers take care

Listen to this story
Upper Canada Village will officially open Its first additional building in 14 years tomorrow: a "new" lodge to expand living displays of life along the St Lawrence in the 1860s. The building was rescued from the Rideau River village of Kars, home turf for our correspondent, Lucy Martin. Townspeople there got a free show back in January as the shuttered structure was jacked up, loaded onto a flatbed, and trucked down the road to the living history museum in Morrisburg. Just two guys handled most of the move: Greg Sullivan, the quiet one, from Chesterville, and Dave Drummond of Almonte, who didn't mind doing a little play-by-play as he began to jack the building onto a stack of wooden blocks.
