We explore the mysterious ruins of a secret laboratory in Gatineau Park, and tell the story of a fascinating entrepreneur and inventor who turned water into light. Learn about Thomas ‘Carbide’ Willson who in the late 1800’s made a name for himself in creating the process by which we create calcium carbide, an important industrial chemical used in the manufacture of acetylene gas. His discovery was about to change the world. His second big quest was fertilizer and he gambled his entire fortune on it.

Available with French Subtitles.
