SOUVENIR COPY OF THIS  MENU   CARD   IN   ENVELOPE  REAjDY  FOR   MAILING   MAY  BE  HAD  ON  APPLICATION TO  DINING  CAR STEWARD Hudson's Bay Co. Canoes
t j ''TRAVELLING IN STYLE" was not unknown, even in the remotest parts of Western
I      Canada, long before the railway era.   Sir George Simpson, Governor of the Hudson's
Bay Company, made a state progress through his territory from York Factory, on
the Bay, to Fort Vancouver on the Pacific coast, in 1§28, which long held  the record for
magnificence.
The party travelled in two immense canoes, each containing nine picked paddlers. In
addition to camping utensils, ample provisions and fire-arms, they carried abundance of
wine for the gentlemen and spirits for the ''voyageurs". The Governor's canoe, gaudily
painted, was easily discernible by its high prow, on which sat the guide of the expedition.
Across the water as they floated along at incredible speed came alternately the sound of
the pibroch, performed by the Governor's bagpipers in the first canoe, the mellow notes
of the bugler in the second canoe, or the cheery chorus of "A la Claire Fontaine" sung by
the voyageurs. Hundreds of Indians assembled at points on the waterway to witness
their passing. The journey, with many stops for business, lasted a little under three months.
"Travelling in style", perhaps, but not in great comfort. The poor passengers were soaking
wet when it was raining, and sometimes when it wasn't. At every portage they and their
baggage had to be carried ashore by wading voyageurs. At every rapids a canoe might be
ripped open, or a bale of baggage lost. The traveller of today covers the same distance in
days instead of months, and with no more of risk or discomfort than if he were in his own
home. ,
