Im working on a map about the railways in British North America, 1865. And
it shows all the railways like the Grand Truck Railway, Maritime Railway, Intercolonial Railway, American Railway, Great Western Railway, and the Northern Railway.

And basically the lands are Ontario, Quebec, and United states.

And Im labelling all the towns and cities at each dot on the map. Would quebec city be next to Montreal on the Map? Montreal is next to Toronto, and after Montreal, I think would be Quebec City....

And back then the capital of New Brunswick was St Johns, so what would have been the the capital of Newfoundland?

Also here is a question:

I have to think that Im travelling from Saint john, New brunswick to toronto. So I got to trace a path that I could take by water. And then it says, label the major waterways you would follow.

So I could take the gulf of St. Lawrence. That's the only waterway there is right?

Why might this pathway be a problem in winter?

Well, wont the water freeze?

Next Question:

Trace route which you could take by rail.

Well, it doesnt list how many routes, so I say that first you should take the Maritime, then the Intercolonial, then take the Grand Trunk and you're there.

Y could you not take this route in 1860?

Thats because I don't think the intercolonial was made then...???( It was a project that was still being worked on)??

And I don't get this question at all....

How would the union of the BNA colonies help to solve this problem?

  1. "And Im labelling all the towns and cities at each dot on the map. Would quebec city be next to Montreal on the Map? Montreal is next to Toronto, and after Montreal, I think would be Quebec City.... "

    Yes. Going from west to east -- Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City

    In 1865, St. John's was the capital of Newfoundland.

    In addition to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, you'd travel on the St. Lawrence River. I don't know if there were any rapids there to stop you, but frozen water would certainly be a hindrance.

    I don't know the answers to your other questions, except the last one.

    The union of the colonies encouraged the colonies to work together to make travel easier between them.
