Transportation by sea, lake and river has been vital to Canada's development as a nation. It remains so today.

This book is an up-to-date analysis of the importance of water transportation to the present-day Canadian economy. It examines current trends and outlines the rapidly changing balance of power among major Canadian ports: the rivalry between Halifax and Saint John, the emergence of Vancouver as a major cruise port, the struggle over land use on the Montreal waterfront, for example. It also considers the future of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the prospects for shipping in Arctic waters, with the questions for Canadian sovereignty that the latter entails.

Water Transportation in Canada is a pioneering, in-depth study of the current state of marine activity in this country.
