Archaeologist digs into province, city for burying past
A Toronto archaeologist wants to save thousands of historical artifacts buried under the city's waterfront from being lost as development plows forward, but he says neither the city nor the province is willing to make a commitment to preserve the past.

"It is our archaeological heritage," says Michael Gregg. "It belongs to the people of Toronto. It belongs to the people of Ontario."

Gregg accuses the province of abdicating its responsibilities, while the city hasn't come up with adequate policies to make sure artifacts are preserved.
