The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885 in an endeavour to bind together various segments of Canada, so widely separated both by distance and topography. Other modes of transportation that have developed in Canada since that time. How the Trans-Canada Pipe Line will contribute to the economic welfare of Canada. Details of the final weld made two months ago yesterday. Testing and approval. Discovering, developing and establishing proven reserves of oil and natural gas: details of such an operation, including financial figures. The unique properties of the project. Some of the construction problems encountered. A list of the benefits this transportation system will bring to Canada, and to the United States. The discussion of the issue of the export of natural gas, and how it would benefit Canada.
