What the speaker learned when he travelled from Vancouver to visit the southeastern corner of British Columbia. Roads being built that will shorten the distance and make the route a very much straighter one between Vancouver and the Kootenay District. Railways from the Canadian Pacific and the Great Northern that will go over the Hope Mountain, perhaps next year. The vast territory that is British Columbia. The future for that province. The diversity of climate and resources to be found in B.C. British Columbia occupying relative to the Pacific Ocean, exactly the position of the British Isles relative to the Atlantic Ocean. The mining, lumbering, fishing and farming industries, with a brief discussion of each. The City of Vancouver on its magnificent site with scenery and shipping facilities; the harbour open all year-round. The Single Tax adopted by Vancouver City council two or three years ago.
