"Voyaging along it on a Canadian Pacific steamship, you spend only four days on the open Atlantic. Every mile of the journey along the smooth, sheltered waters presents vistas of the most appealing charm - scenes that stir your imagination and send your memory harking back to the eventful days when Indian braves were the overlords of the verdant valleys, and when the French pioneers on these shores held precarious tenure of there little forest clearings by force of arms."
