In what is being hailed as a watershed event, Ontario Aboriginal Affairs Minister Brad Duguid signed a deal Thursday to begin transfer of Ipperwash Provincial Park to the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation.

The handover was a key recommendation that came out of the 2007 inquiry into the death of aboriginal activist Dudley George.
