Access to the territory

Improvement and expansion of logging roads over the 1930’s caused significant changes, in the medium and long term, regarding access to the territory frequented and occupied by our families at the time.  Certainly, this road network towards the interior will simplify movement of the families themselves towards their respective territories, allowing them to avoid certain portages and shorten the time to get there.  The presence of lumber camps and equipment and material depots far into the interior of the territory will also give the possibility of families supplying themselves on site, particularly in case of an emergency.  But these advantages are not great, if one compares them with the medium and long-term effects of opening up the territory.
