It’s a whodunit for the ages!
Harry Oakes was a prospector down on his luck and seeking his fortune when he arrived in Kirkland Lake in 1911. In less than ten years he would become a multi-millionaire with the founding of the Toburn and Lake Shore Mines as they produced along the « Mile of Gold ».
With his wealth he left a legacy of philanthropic work in the communities he lived in, and he made many friends in his life – but along the way he also made enemies.
The Unsolved Murder of Sir Harry Oakes: 80 Years Later is a video presentation celebrating the many achievements of a driven man, and his mysterious and unsolved murder at his home in the Bahamas on July 8, 1943.
