Item Date

Turning the sod to mark the beginning of construction on the Hudson Bay Railway.


"Although construction started in 1908, it was 1929 before the rail link to Hudson Bay was finally completed. This line from Saskatchewan to ‘the Bay’ created the shortest shipping route for prairie grain to the markets in Europe. Mired in controversy, the railway would be an on again off again project."
