Markham-Unionville MPP Michael Chan travelled back in time today to the turn of the 20th century as he visited Unionville’s Toogood Pond Park where scenes for an episode of popular Canadian TV series, Murdoch Mysteries, were being filmed.
Murdoch Mysteries is a one-hour drama series set in Toronto that features the innovative crime-solving techniques of Detective William Murdoch, played by actor Yannick Bisson, as he solves some of the City’s most notorious murders.
Other filming locations in Markham today included the Millennium Band Stand in Unionville and the Markham Museum.
“Ontario is home to world-class infrastructure, creative talent and rich diverse cultural assets that continue to earn our province an international reputation as a pre-eminent centre for film and TV production. I am proud that our beautiful community of Markham-Unionville has helped to play an important supporting role in our province’s entertainment and creative industry – a sector that is a key economic driver and showcases Ontario on the world stage.”
— Michael Chan, M.P.P., Markham-Unionville
