No need for a canal in a few generations the Isthmus will be under water.
Thanks for the much needed history lesson Mr. MacKay.

The one lasting legacy the never-completed ship railway did provide is its use as a topic by students over the years for their public-speaking projects. Enough speeches have been given on the ship railway at Cumberland County schools in the past 50 years that you could probably lay the recipe cards they were all written on end-to-end and completely cover the isthmus of Chignecto twice over, or at least fill up the trench dug by the MTA students!
