Railway development in Canada: with particular reference to regional influences Reid, Laurens Vernon


Canadian geography and the development of Canada since Confederation have dictated that the Dominion should be divided into several almost distinct regions with different views regarding rates for the transportation of their products. In this essay the author endeavours to trace the history of the strong representations which the provincial governments, independently or in groups, have made to the Dominion Government, from time to time, regarding various freight questions or the need for railway facilities and also what they have attempted to do on their own behalf.
