The Canadian Canal Society - Meets April 10th, 2011


This April 10th, 2011 at 2:00p.m. the Canadian Canal Society will have it's Annual General Meeting at the St. Catharines Museum at Lock 3 of the Welland Canal. I am a strong believer and supporter of Canada's Canal system and maritime history. My own family's history has hundreds of years involvement with the sea while they were in the Maritimes.
The Welland Canal system was an important key in the settling and industrial history of the Niagara Peninsula and it has a rich history with more than a little drama and pain attached. In an ever more expensive petroleum liquid fuel world, the Welland Canal will once again be a key component of the North American Transportation System.

P.S. As one who attended the above mentioned Canal Society AGM, I don't believe that this society is the best way to support the Welland Canal. I would recommend direct correspondence with the Prime Minister's Office or your Local Member Of Parliament.
