Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 19, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta -^-.-y�-VA-T- rm i TiTnBKiDOK patly herald SiUiinlay. Odober 10, 1012 PORT MANN "CITY OF CERTAINTIES" TERMINUS C.N.R. Sir Donald 31;niii iiitorvi(nvod at Wiiiinpeu,' on WtMlnesday. doclared eiupluitically and ]dainly lliat llio Weslcvn Ocean torininus of tlio Canadian Xovth-orn is to 1)o Port .Mann. As Vico-l'n'sidcnl of the (.'. X. li. and owner of [iracfioally half of the stoek in tlie compaiiy. .Sir ])ojiald is in a posititni to know wJmt he is talkinn; ahout. Also ho is not lik(dy to talk Avithont Aveighinf;- avoH his words. We liavo hoard niucli of late on this (erniinus question, but this declaration ends nil discussion. 1'iie C. X. E. own not oiic foot of water frontasxe in Vancouver-tlie,y desire the False Cre(>k site there merely as a passenger terminal and to take care of local I'reio-ht. As a matter of fact the area they are � aslcinc: for is not big' enough for anything else. Property values are sure to make great advances. We do not sell any outside property, only the choice stuff in the heart of the CANADIAN NORTHERN TOWNSITE; We own or control the major portion. For full information write to Xow. Avhat does this dc(daration mean? It nieans that every bushel of the millions of bushels of i)rairie Avheat the C.N.II. will handle for ranania shijinient, will go onto the ships at Port Mann. It nieans that flour mills by th(> do/.cn will be built at the ])oint where the grain meets the deep Avatcr-at Port ^lann. Further, Port ^lann is the only spot in "Western B. C. wliej-o manufacturing sites with deep water-frontage and trackau'c nniv be had free or practic;-ally so. Ask yourself what THAT means. Will iuanufacturers pay enormous prices for such sites on Burrard Inlet, or will they locate free along Port Mann's (30 ft, deep frash water harbor. Not hard to answer, is it? Port Mann has already secured industries, for this reason, that will employ in a few years doublo liu� nu:>n on, Vancouver's factory payroll today. And that is only the l)eginning. Ten years from now wo will see Port Mann witli the greatest aggregation of factories on th'i Pacilc Coast-will {see it the jnan-ufacturing centre of the West, All this concerns YOU. There is coming in Port Mann in the next fcw^ years Iho biggest increase in property values ever seen in Canada, It can't be otherwise. Canadian Northern oflicials arc advising their life long personal friends to buy all the Port Mann property they can handle. We strongly advise yon to do likew^ise. PACinC PROPERTIES, LT O. J.
