Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadian character shaped by geography *The Mountains9 First in o new series of Canada portraits the CTV network will present The Mountains' on Sunday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. on channel 13. The awesome beauty of the mountains, and the sensitive character of the people around tfeem are brought to life in the first episode of the CTV Television Network's series of spe-1 cials "Canada: Five Portraits," entitled "The Mountains," telecasting Sunday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. on Channel 13. Six magnificent chains of mountain ranges run north to south through this part of Canada, but only five per cent of it is arable or usable. Yet the people have managed to fashion a life style around them. The people are strong with a curious soul; some say their personal-icy is arrogant, others say it] has a sense of fatalism which ] borders on the religious. The first inhabitants of the mountains were the Indians. The first white men to come did not stay long. They attacked the mountains for treasure and left behind more ghost towns than any other place on earth. Vancouver is to the mountains that Rome was to the ancient Romans. It is a centre of good taste, high earnings, good architecture, theatre and music. It is also the biggest port on the whole west coast of North America. And there is Victoria, too, where the flowers bloom in February and where the sun shines more than it does almost anywhere else in Canada. More than three hundred inches of rain fall on some parts of this region. This is what produces the rain forests and what fs neided to grow the mighty Douglas Fir. These enormous rains do not fall evenly over the mountains. In one part of Vancouver the rainfall is less than in Montreal, yet another part, fifteen miles away, has nearly three times as much as Halifax. And when we reach Kamloops, the land becomes desert and little grows. The smills that hug the air there are those of sage and desert flowers, not of fir and spruce. Away from that pocket of pe^'e in the sowth-wect corner is a land bigger than all the states on the American west cosss'. peopled by fewer inha-bitanU than Hamilton, Ontario. Her.? we find people who have more in common with Regina HOMEOWNERS! CASH for any purpose 1st, 2nd, 3rd MORTGAGES LOANS MADE ON AGREEMENTS FOR SALE BORROW $1500.00 TO ^50,000.00 OR MORE NORMAN J.
