News in Review Canadian National: The Continental Railway

According to the Laurentian theory of Canadian history, Canada as a nation developed from east to west because of the immense inland waterway of the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes, and Sir John A. Macdonald’s transcontinental railway, the natural extension of the maritime route. The importance of railways in the evolution of Canadian society cannot be underestimated. And now, railways are once again at the core of another historical phenomenon: the “continentalization” of North American society.
