Promoting a better understanding between the various sections of the far-flung Dominion. Taking to the highway to come into intimate contact with the citizens of any particular part. Creating unity within the Empire through the development of the Trans-Canada Highway. This highway to be the longest in the world, traversing eight of Canada's nine provinces, and exhibiting more varieties of scenery and landscape than could be imagined elsewhere, starting at the Atlantic Ocean side at Halifax, and ending at Vancouver, on the Pacific side of the Continent. The speaker takes the audience on a travellogue across Canada, using a slide presentation to do so. The detailed description and narrative includes personal reminiscences of journeys taken by the speaker. Some concluding lines from Dr. Conan Doyle about Canada.
