The presence of the “Pakenham whale” links to a time 13,000 to 10,000 years ago, when an ice-age inlet of the Atlantic Ocean blanketed parts of Ontario and Quebec. This habitat for aquatic life, known as the Champlain Sea, was created by the retreating glaciers during the close of the last glacial period.
