The Story of the Chignecto Barrier
10 The Story of the Chignecto Barrier
Chignecto Canal Committee 1948 Soft Cover Good Plus to Very Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Charts By Stevenson & Kellogg, Ltd., Montreal 
Softcover booklet of 19 pp. The idea of enabling ship traffic across the Chignecto Isthmus has been around for over 300 years. Time after time great plans are laid, only to be abandoned on the basis of cost. In 1882, H.G.C. Ketchum launched a plan to build a railway to carry ships across, but after spending $4,000,000 he ran out of time. This book dated about 1948 is a plea to try again. "Canada must keep her promise and build it now." - P.15. For further light on the subject, take a trip to Tidnish and research it on the internet.
