You’d never know it but the sleepy hamlet of Canfield in Southern Ontario has an interesting history, one that’s been hidden from view for years. Bill Douglas lived in Canfield most of his life and even he’s surprised when local historians begin to reveal his family’s role in Canfield’s rich history of Black ancestry.
