Array GREAT LAKES GREAT LAKES
Wau, Way.
Canadian. Oucfec       CancufauiGhafiu: Deck sports—
shuffleboard and
watching passing liners
are part of the fun of a
Great Lakes cruise.
As a short holiday in itself the round-trip
voyage—either way—aboard "Keewatin," or
"Assiniboia" is attractive. Schedules allow
time for visits to Toronto and southern Ontario for eastbound passengers. Westbound
passengers who have chosen the leisurely
interlude of the scenic steamship voyage up
the Great Lakes have an ample opportunity
for sight seeing. Between the breakfast time
arrival of the ship at the Lakehead and the
lunch time westward departure of "The
Canadian" there is time for sightseeing at Fort
William and Port Arthur ...time to see the
great harbour...the huge grain elevators..♦
the parks of both cities...the Fort William
Zoo devoted to local wild life ... and, with
the opening of the great St. Lawrence Seaway,
to watch the evolution of Canada's head of
inland waterway navigation into an international deep sea port
The rugged beauty of the Great Lakes...the thrill of steamship life...the romance of cruising the world's largest
inland waterways...historic sights...long, lazy, brilliant days...cool nights with stars swinging low...pleasant
companions ... holiday citmosphere ... shipboard life the Canadian Pacific way. West-, or east-bound across
Canada you can include a Great Lakes voyage in your itinerary. Twice every summer week S.S. Keewatin and
S.S. Assiniboia sail from Port McNicoll and Fort William. Two water-borne nights and most of two days are a
pleasant interlude in your transcontinental journey*
Beyond the Great Lakes—1200 miles to the West—the
great mountains of the Canadian Rockies thrust their
peaks into the sky. Stark, challenging, majestic, their feet
circled by rushing waters and tumbling falls, their slopes
covered with evergreen trees and wild flowers, they call
you to another vacationland.
In the Canadian Rockies on the Canadian Pacific main
line are: Banff... Mount Eisenhower... Lake Louise . ♦ ♦
Mount Wapta ... Emerald Lake ... Icefield Highway. ♦ ♦
Spiral Tunnels... Moraine Lake... Sulphur Mountain .. ♦
Moose ... Elk ... Bighorn Sheep ... Marmots ... Brown
Bear... great National Parks ... Red-Coated Royal
Canadian Mounted Police... Indians... Climbs... Hikes
♦ ♦ ♦ Riding ... Fishing... Swimming... magnificent Hotels
♦ ♦. Banff School of Fine Arts.

the two countries.  And every port on the

GREAT LAKES  HOLIDAY
Within the usual summer vacation limits pleasant and interesting
holidays can be planned with the Canadian Pacific Great Lakes
service  as a  basis.
Sailing on Saturday by the Assiniboia, a pleasant itinerary can
include time in Port Arthur and Fort William with visits to
Kakabeka Falls; Kenora for the Lake of the Woods and Devil's
Gap Lodge; the great city of Winnipeg and the famous beaches on
Lake Winnipeg; returning by the same ship on the second Tuesday.
For visits to the East, the Canadian Pacific Great Lakes liner
Keewatin offers a similar opportunity. Departure from Winnipeg
Friday night lands the holiday-maker in Port McNicoll ready to
include a visit to Toronto, Niagara Falls, and the famous Peach
Belt. The return trip can be made by either liner. These itineraries
can be extended by using ship in one direction and train along
the spectacular North Shore of Lake Superior on the return journey
which may also include stopovers at fishing points along the North
Shore and famous French River.
