»■ ....ii i «
A Admirably suited as a summer play-
ot. Andrews- ground, the coast of New Brunswick
by-the-Sea is indented with many harbors, bays
and sounds, so formed by Nature as to be ideal for fishing,
boating and yachting. Passamaquoddy Bay and its
calm waters are warmer than those on the exposed coasts
a little farther south. St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, at one
of the most picturesque points on this bay, was therefore
selected by the Canadian Pacific Railway as a suitable
location for a summer hotel. St. Andrews is a favorite
summer resort.
No prettier place can be found on the Atlantic Coast.
Here are two of the best seaside golf courses in America,
a delightful bathing beach, numerous tennis courts, a
bowling green, charming drives and other attractions.
The bathing is excellent, the sailing equally so.
. Saint John,  the largest city of the
Saint John       province, is situated on the northern
shore of the Bay of Fundy, at the mouth of the Saint
John River, 481 miles east of Montreal.    It is essentially
a maritime city and its fine docks and harbors are always
interesting.    Among  the  sights  of Saint  John  is  the
remarkable demonstration known as the Reversing Falls.
„ Fredericton,   the   Provincial   capital,
Fredericton     45 miles from Saint John, is situated
on the noble Saint John River, which drains a territory
larger than any river on the Atlantic Coast, and traverses
a district of great beauty and fertility; and it is doubtful
if a more beautiful spot can be found for a summer outing
than on the banks of this river, anywhere in the long
stretch between Fredericton and Saint John.
The best salmon fishing today in the
Fishing Province is the result of stocking certain
rivers with fry and then protecting the salmon when
they ascend from the ocean. Naturally such effort has
demanded a considerable outlay, and as a result the best
water is either leased or owned by clubs or private individuals. There is, however, "water" to which at times the
public has access.
The trout fishing is unexcelled in most of the rivers
and streams.
Remarkably good fly fishing in season is offered on
the upper Nepisiguit, Bedell Brook, the Tabusintac,
Green River, the Madawaska and other streams.

this beautiful Grand Pre country with the equally beautiful
Evangeline story, it has been supplied by a statue of
Evangeline that has been erected at this very spot.
Halifax, the largest city and provincial
Halifax capital of Nova Scotia, has an un
rivalled harbor, capable of holding all the navies of North
America. Halifax is full of historic interest and is a most
delightful place to visit.
Nova Scotia has fishing in lake and
rlShmg stream for trout and salmon, in the
deep-sea tides for cod, mackerel, haddock and pollock, and
fine shooting in the woods that form the province's backbone.

Windsor Station, Montreal
The priest railway station in Canada, and headquarters of
the Canadian Pacific.
With forests covering 130,000,000 acres, with a national
park of over three thousand square miles, with opportunities for hunting and fishing as wonderful as anywhere on
this continent, with three centuries of romantic history in
its two great cities, the Province of Quebec has alike for
the tourist, the traveller and its own two million people
what is almost an embarrassment of riches.
Montreal stands on an island on the
.Montreal site of the ancient Indian village of
Hochelaga. It not only enjoys the distinction of being a
great ocean port nearly a thousand miles inland, but
in point of foreign commerce is the second port of North
America. The city is 150 miles above salt water, but
the broad St. Lawrence forms a highway upon which
ocean-going steamers ascend.
Prominent from every part of Montreal is Mount
Royal, a large and beautiful public park. From the Lookout a wonderful panoramic view can be obtained of the
city and river. Historically, Montreal is as interesting
as the City of Quebec, although it lives so strictly in the
present. Montreal is the fourth largest French-
speaking city in the world; over half its population
of 1,000,000 speak French as their mother tongue.
There are a large number of first-class hotels, among
them being the "Place Viger," owned by the Canadian

Chateau Frontenac and. Lower Town, Quebec
The Chateau overlooks the St. Lawrence River and affords
one of the most magnificent views in America.
There are about twenty golf courses in Montreal, one
of them a municipal course.
—. „ The City of Quebec, 172 miles east of
City OI Montreal,    was   the   birthplace   of
Quebec North America and of the civilisation
that now extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The
grandeur of its site, the beauty of its scenery, and the
poignancy of its checkered history endow it with a special
appeal. No other city on this continent has such an
individual charm or such definite personality. The city
occupies the base and summit of a lofty crag projecting
into the St. Lawrence River. Here the Canadian Pacific has
erected the Chateau Frontenac, a perfect and famous hotel.
The Plains of Abraham (Battlefield Park) where was
fought one of the most fateful battles of modern times, is
now maintained as a public park.
A visit to the City of Quebec is

Falls lightful side trips.    There is a run
of seven miles out to where the Montmorency River

Of all the provinces of Canada, Ontario is one of the
most richly endowed in natural beauty. It contains
407,000 square miles, of which 41,000 comprise water.
Here, indeed, is Summerland, the true objective of
the vacationist—the land of deep forest and jewelled
waterway, the haunt of fish and game, the home of the
light canoe, and the place of the flat rock and the camp-
fire. And its infinite variety! Let the summer-seeker
stand at Toronto for a convenient point, for example,
and construct an imaginary triangle from that apex.
One side will be Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence
River; the other will sweep across Lake Huron, through
the Soo Canal, then across Lake Superior to Fort William.
The base will be the main line of the Canadian
Pacific. Within this triangle he will find all the variety
he wants.
Toronto is the capital of Ontario and
Toronto the  second  largest  city  of Canada.
It is beautifully situated on the shore of Lake Ontario.
It has immense manufacturing establishments, and some
of the largest commercial houses and banks in the Dominion. Through its crowded streets throbs a vast hum
of commerce. Its educational institutions are well known,
as also is the charm of its residential districts. It abounds
in golf courses and has two municipal courses.
A magnificent new Canadian Pacific hotel—the Royal
York—is being erected at Toronto, and will be opened
in early summer, 1929.

24 The Canadian Pacific Rockies
The Canadian Pacific Rockies stretch from the Gap,
60 miles west of Calgary, practically to Vancouver,—
nearly 600 miles of Alpine scenery. Snowy peaks,
glaciers, rugged precipices, water falls, foaming torrents,
canyons, lakes like vast sapphires and amethysts set
in the pine-clad mountains—these have been flung together
in unparalleled confusion on a scale which the rest of
the world has not known.
_      _, For many years Banff, the gateway to
x5anix Rocky Mountains Park, has attracted
tourists and lovers of Nature from all corners of the earth.
Situated in the heart of the Canadian Pacific Rockies,
with a wilderness of untrodden crags and peaks radiating in every direction and abounding in game of large
and small variety, it bids tho photographer, the naturalist,
and the mountain climber welcome. The traveller
seeking a holiday can find all his wants supplied at the
finest mountain hotel in the world, the Canadian Pacific
Banff Springs Hotel. Sulphur springs and bathing pools,
also an excellent golf course and tennis court, form some of the
many attractions at this resort. The Banff-Windermere
motor road has opened up a magnificent Alpine country.
Lake Louise The lake is one of the most perfect
gems of scenery in the world—"a lake of the deepest
and most exquisite coloring, ever changing, defying
analysis, mirroring in its wonderful depths the sombre
forests and cliffs that rise from its shores on either side,
the gleaming white glacier and tremendous snow-crowned
3eaks that fill the background of the picture, and the
3lue sky and fleecy clouds overhead." On the shores
of this beautiful lake the Canadian Pacific operates the
splendid Chateau Lake Louise. Numerous magnificent
and imposing mountains surround the lake. Victoria
Glacier, which shuts off the southern end of the lake,
is an awe-inspiring spectacle. Along the western shore
of the lake is a delightful mile and a half walk affording
splendid views of these gigantic peaks. Among the
numerous delightful excursions is that to Lakes in the
Clouds, two gems that nestle high up on the mountain
sides, and that to Moraine Lake, a lovely mountain lake
lying in the Valley of the Ten Peaks.
