Item Date

Canadian Pacific Railway lines in Western Canada.


Signed in 1897, the Crow's Nest Pass agreement between the government and the CPR provided the railway with a subsidy to build a new line through the mountains of southern British Columbia. In exchange the railway had to lower freight rates for eastbound grain 'in perpetuity'. The agreement would have a major and long lasting impact on grain handling and marketing.
