An Old Project The Georgian Bay canal is by no means a new project. The proposal dtilize the natural waterways between Georgian Bay and tae Ottawa River! was first mooted in 1S45. In 1856 and 60 surveys were actually made, and j j since that rime the canal lias constant- j 12y been among the probabilities. Dis- satisfaction with the lower lakes and rival channels has, however, greatly quickened the interest in another and better route. The following table indicates at r glance the advantage in point of dis- lance that would be afforded by the Georgian Bay route in comparison with existing waterways. Georgian Bay would require six hun dred and fifty-nine feet of lockage, b.ur the newer route .would be so' mucr outwei-h ever lit t beat New York even wIC forecasted improvements in the It has been >-rt v i_: Ottawa Valley are'; enthusiastic, -par ticulafly -the latter.

The distance jjo'wev'e- available for tW hundred ter days out of the year, the .Welland canal, thus allows about twenty-two w o be something like 70 per cent, i days more of navigation.
