Which actually doesn't show the original URL's source, but the soure of 
where http://ontario.ca/mininglands directs to.

Using lynx you can get the unredirected source with:
lynx -noredir -source http://ontario.ca/mininglands

And to see the HTTP headers making the redirection you'd:
lynx -source -head http://ontario.ca/mininglands
