Dennis T. Patrick Sears

Dennis T. Patrick Sears (1925-1976) at one time resided in Carden Township, Kawartha Lakes. He is the author of three novels, two set in Kawartha Lakes (formerly Victoria County.)

Sears is credited with the often misquoted remark about Lindsay having “the reputation for having the widest main street and the narrowest minds of any town north of the Rio Grande.”
