Homework Help: Battle of the Routes

Posted by Emma on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 8:10pm.

What was the battle of the routes?
how was it resolved?

The battle of the routes was a battle for where the railway routes should be located. Politicians from Vancouver island thought the railway should travel across the central interior, down the Homathco River to Bute Inlet, and then cross the strait of Georgia at its narrowest point to the island. Politicians from mainland favoured a route that would travel down the Fraser Canyon to Burrard Inlet. Surveyors starting developing their own ideal routes as well.

I cant find information on how this battle was resolved.
