||Construction and excavation in the Toronto area has led to large quantities of bedrock from the Georgian Bay formation being trucked away and dumped to make a good base for parking lots roads etc. This short window of opportunity makes for a great fossil playground for students and a study field for researchers. Already one new species of marine animal has been discovered by a local collector and named after him by the Royal Ontario Museum.
