No great natural obstacles di- vide tlese river basins, and plge from one to another is easily made by short portages. Travel by llt or canoe throughout the northern and eastern parts of Canada though slow, has always been easy. Until the railways were built, set- tlement and commerce were largely confined to the seacoast and tim ter- ritories adjacent to the great rivers and lakes of the interior. The age of railway expansion foildwcd the con- federation of the colonies of British North America into the Dominion of Canada and made possible the settle- ment of the extensive farming dis- tricts on the prairies of tha! region, hitherto without access to any market.
