      town, Kent county, southern Ontario, Canada. It lies at the confluence of the north and east branches of the Sydenham River, 30 miles (50 km) northeast of Detroit, Mich. The town was called The Forks until it was renamed for Sir William Wallace, a medieval Scottish national hero. Its deepwater connections to Lake St. Clair and Great Lakes shipping have led to its development as a port of entry and manufacturing centre.
