Lezlie Harper Wells, from Niagara Bound Tours, St. Catharines, gave a presentation of the 'Underground Railroad, ' and it's many local monuments and historical places.   The Underground Railroad is a reference to the secret paths used to smuggle run away slaves from the U.S. into Canada.    The Niagara region is dotted with history pertaining to that sad era.
Lezlie herself is a descendant of run away slaves, and lectures with pride of her past history.  Even Canada permitted slavery up until 1792, when it was abandoned by John Simcoe.
We look forward to have back in the future, Lezlie, as you have much more to tell us.
Thank you for your presentation.
