Wawa guide

The famous Wawa Goose sits beside the Tourist Information Centre at the edge of the Trans Canada Highway. Wawa, Ontario is a community in Northern Ontario, Canada, located in Michipicoten Township in the Algoma District. The community is known for its 28-foot-tall metal statue of a Canada goose, which was built in 1963. Wawa takes its name from the Ojibwe word for "wild goose", wewe. The community is located on Highway 101, just a few kilometres east of the junction with Highway 17. Sault Ste. Marie is located approximately 220 km south. Lake Superior Provincial Park is located just south of Wawa. Wawa's history is rich in mining, forestry and the fur trade. Although mining attempts began as early as the late 1660s, it wasn't until 1896 that gold was discovered on nearby Wawa Lake which led to a rush to the area. The population grew from a handful of people to approximately a thousand people. Wawa is also known for its snowmobiling and fishing. It depends on tourism coming from the Trans-Canada Highway.

    It is okay for GEJ and his goons to accuse Nyanko of sponsoring BokoHarram but not okay for Nyanko to pay them back in their own coin. WAWA!
