SUMMER 1942
First trip  (rom  Port McNicoll  and  Fort William  June   13
between PORT McNICOLL - SAULT STE. MARIE
PORT ARTHUR      -       FORT WILLIAM
via GEORGIAN BAY - LAKE HURON - ST. MARY'S RIVER
WHITEFISH BAY  -   LAKE SUPERIOR   -  THUNDER BAY
Whether you take a Great Lakes cruise as a trip in itself, or as a delightful interlude in your rail journey across the continent, the voyage
between Port McNicoll and Fort William is memorable. During the summer, the great white ships of the Canadian Pacific provide a
westbound sailing FROM PORT McNICOLL EACH WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY ,and an eastbound sailing FROM FORT
WILLIAM AND PORT ARTHUR EACH TUESDAY AND SATURDAY. As an alternate route for the trans-Canada passenger,
a trip via the Great Lakes will prove most attractive and surprisingly inexpensive.

THRESHOLD of the inland seas is beautiful
Georgian Bay. Rolling wooded shores —
deep, clear waters — rocky pine-clad islands —
no wonder Georgian Bay is renowned as one of
the most attractive and unspoiled resort regions
in North America. Here history sails the same
route as you do. Here came Champlain the
explorer. Here came Brebeuf and Lalemant the
missionaries. Here clashed the Iroquois and the
Huron Indians. Today, shrines to martyred Jesuits
— crumbling forts and relics of redskin warriors
are all that remain of the storied past. Today come
new explorers, just as eager as those of bygone
days to follow the northwest lake route into the
setting sun. But not in birch bark canoes now —
in spacious Canadian Pacific ships that cruise
majestically across the Great Lakes.
Over 30,000 islands dot the shores of Georgian
Bay — islands among the oldest known to geologists. Of these the Christian Islands comprise the
first easterly group — Faith, Hope and Charity —
now Indian reservations of the Ojibway race. Far
in the distance are the Blue Mountains of Colling-
wood, and to the right a group of islands — the
Westerns, where stands a friendly lighthouse.
There is gentle beauty in the tree-clothed
slopes of the shores, sharp contrast to the rocky
islands. Canoes, yachts and sailboats ply to and
from the mouth of the Severn River — summer
cottages and camps form colourful patches along
the shores. Westward, then, through these rocky
islands — westward past Bruce Peninsula and
Georgian Bay Islands National Park — past Flower
Pot Island — out to Lake Huron proper through
the Soo Locks, and across Lake Superior in your
big, white Canadian Pacific liner !
One of the stately
Canadian Pacific
Great Lakes liners fhtffcol  /kkftut™
A few short hours from Toronto and
your train rolls to a stop at Port
McNicoll, just a step from the great
white S.S. Keewatin or S.S. Assiniboia.
Then, while you catch a brief glimpse
of flowers in the foreground and grain
elevators on the skyline, your baggage
is whisked aboard. You follow, and
wave from the sun deck as the liner
floats away from the dock and you hear,
trumpeting welcomingly, the bugle call
to your first delicious shipboard dinner.
NEW friends — developed with the
speed that is one of the mysterious
delights of shipboard life — join you in
moonlight dancing on the deck to the
pulsating rhythm of the ship's orchestra
— or, if the Northern Lights are on display
(as they so often are) what is more inspiring
than to watch them march across the sky!
Then a midnight snack to curb your
breeze-sharpened appetite — and so to
bed as your ship trails a silvery wake
across sleeping Lake Huron.

MARTYRS' SHRINE

Situated only two miles from Port
McNicoll, this famous Shrine marks
the site of the historic Huron home
of the Jesuit Martyrs of the 17th

yearly pilgrimages for thousands.

Afternoon tea seems a long way behind in the exhilarating air

gloriously indicates why they called it the "Golden" west.

ON into the west as the rising sun
glints on your wake! Silver Islet
and Thunder Cape with its "sleeping
giant" pass in review. Then well-named
Welcome Island and soon the gleaming
twin cities of Canada's Lake Head — Port
Arthur and Fort William. Here, as you
approach, you see the huge terminal
elevators with their stores of precious
wheat. Here is a grand, open-air resort
area. Kakabeka Falls, a great picnic
ground, is close by. Chippewa Park
offers comfortable tourist lodges and an
attractive bathing beach. In the Chippewa
Park Zoo, established on an ancient
Indian Reserve, are wild animals and birds
native to the district — bear, moose, fox,
crane, loon and heron. But it is time for
farewells — some of us step ashore to go
westward across the plains — some stay
aboard to enjoy the return voyage — all
have enjoyed a memorable experience
— the thrills of a cruise on inland seas.

(Adapted from the notes of the late Captain James McCannel,
former Master of the Canadian Pacific Steamship "Assiniboia")
THE five "Great Lakes" of the North American continent
(Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario) are really
fresh-water inland seas. They are drained ultimately
by the St. Lawrence River, which — with its tributaries—
flows to the Atlantic Ocean with the waters of a basin nearly
500,000 square miles in size. 2,200 miles is the distance
from the head of Lake Superior to tide-water in the Gulf of
St. Lawrence.
From time immemorial these waterways were traversed by
Indians in their birch bark canoes, sometimes in peace and
often in war. The first white men to visit these inland seas
came up by river and lake in the birch bark canoes of the
Indians, which were light in construction and easily carried
over the portages. In 1615 Samuel de Champlain journeyed
from Montreal by way of the Ottawa River, Lake Nipissing
and French River to Georgian Bay, and landed in what is
now known as Penetanguishene Bay. He was soon followed
from time to time by other explorers who had penetrated
farther westward and sometime during the summer of 1623
Etienne Brule arrived at what is now Sault Ste. Marie, and was
the first white man to gaze on Lake Superior, the largest and
finest body of fresh water in the world.
In 1649 Fathers Brebeuf and Lalemant were tortured and
murdered by the savage Iroquois near Georgian Bay, and
farther away — near the Blue Mountains of Collingwood —
Fathers Daniel and Gamier met a similar fate. A short distance
from Port McNicoll a beautiful shrine has been erected to
commemorate the death of these martyrs. Now, during the
summer, thousands of pilgrims visit this shrine. Farther down
the Bay is the site of a former military and naval station, selected
in 1796 by Governor Simcoe and occupied by some of the
most famous regiments of the line.
Radisson and Groseillers made a survey of Lake Superior
in 1660 and 1661 and about the same time the Jesuits established their first mission on this lake. Some years later Joliet
was sent to investigate the copper deposits reputed to exist
there, and in 1678 Du Lhut established a fur trading post on
the present site of Fort William.
With the arrival of settlers, first from France, and later from
the British Isles, {who usually located along the shores of the
lakes and riversj it was soon found that the canoes were not
large enough to take care of the growing commerce of the
new world, and consequently they began building sail boats,
which increased in size as the trade warranted.    In the early
years of the last century men began to build steamboats oi
various types and designs, as it was found that sail could not
always give the service necessary, and by the middle of the
century it was a race between sail and steam, as to which would
be supreme. Sailormen looked with disdain on steamboats
and did not take kindly to that mode of propulsion, but eventually steam succeeded in driving sailing ships out of business.
During the '60's and '70's sailing ships reached their zenith
and from that time on began to decline. We find in the early
70's there were over 1,400 sailing vessels registered in Canada
and the United States, and from 1848 to 1875 many of these
made successful ocean voyages clearing from lake ports with
grain, square timber, lumber, staves, spars, copper and silver
ore for British ports. One brig, the "SEAGULL", loaded
farm implements at Toronto for Cape Town, and during the
same years British and Norwegian ships came up to the
Great Lakes ports.
To the west of the Great Lakes were two great fur-trading
companies. The Hudson's Bay Co., receiving the goods necessary for the trade, transported them from England in their own
ships to York Factory and then sent them inland by canoe and
York boats. The North West Co., composed largely of Highland Scots from Montreal, was a great rival to the former, and
every spring brigades of canoes were loaded at Lachine and
these hardy voyageurs paddled every mile of navigable water,
coming up by the Ottawa River, Lake Nipissing, the French
River, coursing along the shores of Georgian Bay, the North
Channel, Soo River, around the north shore of Lake Superior to
the Grand Portage; and then loaded into the north canoes,
which were much smaller, and carried by lakes and rivers to
the remote posts on the western plains. At the rapids and
waterfalls all this freight had to be unloaded and carried across
on the backs of the men; a very laborious work. These two
companies were merged in 1821.
Today the scene is changed. The steamship now carries
on the work, and modern skill has succeeded in designing a
class of vessel most suited to the trade. The white-sided, Clyde-
built steamships of the Canadian Pacific Great Lakes fleet
maintain a convenient service between Port McNicoll and
Fort William for the passenger and freight trade. Travellers
who make a trip by the Great Lakes will be well repaid.
There is no finer trip anywhere in the world than from Port
McNicoll to Fort William on one of the staunch Canadian
Pacific steamers, a distance of 544 miles over an enchanting
lake and river route.
This booklet describes a westbound cruise from Port McNicoll to Port Arthur and Fort William—
the voyage in the opposite direction follows the same interesting route and is equally attractive
