a Nation's Gateway
Vancouver and Victoria
"Ending Nowhere! "—Forty years ago,
the Western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway
was only a clearing in the forest—Victoria hardly more
than a village. British Columbia was a mining colony
of a few thousand people. Wise heads nodded grave
concern over those 2,500 miles of rails ending nowhere.
Yet the men who built the Canadian Pacific,
then the world's longest railroad, saw what all see
now—not only a road to Vancouver, but a highway
through Canada to the Orient.
On this highway, at the Western gateway, two
great cities rear their heads. Great they are, and growing greater. They typify the wealth of a wealthy
province. But their position on the Pacific links them
directly with the nation's commerce, and brings them
within the greater circle of world trade. Half a hundred
cities and towns have sprung into being since, to turn
British Columbia's resources into wealth, but Vancouver
and Victoria still remain the largest.
Vancouver, on the mainland, with its almost landlocked harbor, is the terminal of the Canadian Pacific
rail lines. Victoria, a four hour sail across the Juan de
Fuca Strait at the southern end of Vancouver Island, is
the provincial capital. Both of them are ports for Canadian Pacific steamship services to China and Japan, and
for other services to Australia and New Zealand, Alaska,
and the coast of British Columbia. Each is the focal point
for enormous lumbering, fishing, mining, agricultural and
commercial enterprises. And each, it may be added, is
also a pleasant city to live in or to play in, for both have
a mild climate, larger bodies of water, and multitudinous
opportunities for all those outdoor activities which
recreate the body and the mind. Equally in winter
as in summer are their charming garden-embowdered
surroundings the resort of the tourist.
