SOUVENIR   COPY   OF  THIS   MENU   CARD   IN   ENVELOPE   READY   FOR   MAILING   MAY   BE   HAD   ON   APPLICATION  TO   DINING  CAR   STEWARD Before the Canadian Pacific
Think of a Canada without Vancouver and Victoria!
Without Winnipeg?    Without the wonderful cities of the plains!
Think of a Canada ending at Lake Huron, its commercial arm
reaching feebly by steamer to the head of the lakes—the fertility of its
plains growing fodder for buffaloes—its trade with the mighty West
a traffic in beavers' pelts!
That was Canada of the /eighties.
Small wonder that the sovereign rights to the Northwest were
transferred to the Dominion of Canada for £300,000! Without transportation, Canada's boundless acres had no value. Moreover, from a national
view that stretch of wilderness was a formidable barrier to a United
Canada, for it lay between the mountain-walled colony on the Pacific
and the older provinces of the East.
Building the railroad across this unsettled, unproductive continent
was the supreme test of the growing nation's courage, its vision, and its
resources.
The Canadian Pacific was young Canada's answer to those who
questioned her political future. By binding together her widely-scattered
peoples, by uncovering the wealth of the prairies, by opening the highway from the Orient to Europe, the Canadian Pacific laid the foundation
of Canada's greatness. The achievements—and ideals—of the doughty
Canadians of the 'eighties have been the inspiration for the great works
of national development carried on by the Canadian Pacific.
