In 1615 Samuel Champlain sent a young guide to scout the route southward from the Lake Simcoe region. So it was that Etienne Brule became the first recorded explorer to see the Humber and view Lake Ontario. Brule lived among the Huron Indians, learned their language and customs and became an important mediator between the Huron Indians and the French Settlers. He travelled the Humber, part of a long established trading route known as “Toronto Carrying Place.” Ornaments, weapons and furs were popular trading commodities.
