What people are saying:

The Last Spike—The second largest country in the world since then The last spike is a well-known cultural attraction on the way from British Columbia to Banff National Park. Craigellachie (Craigellachie) passed through the east and west sections of the Canadian Pacific Railway. From then on, this newly developed area has been connected with the Canadian Great Lakes (Toronto) and even the Atlantic (Halifax), regardless of the westward United States Tsarist Russia, still entrenched in Alaska, can no longer erode this land. The predecessor of the Canadian Pacific Railway System is the Great Lakes Canada (the three Prairie Provinces further west and British Columbia are both newly developed areas, and it was gradually merged into the Canadian Commonwealth until the end of the 19th century) to the railway line between British Columbia, in 1881 The existing railway, which was built between 1885 to connect the Ottawa Valley and Georgian Bay, fulfilled the return promise of British Columbia joining the Canadian Confederation in 1871. Visitors to Banff National Park will be surprised by the magnificence of the mountains and rivers there. Of course, this kind of terrain was absolutely right in the 19th century. Until now, there are still many places along the Canadian Highway No. 1 named XX pass (mountain pass) XX tunnel (tunnel), these places are often nightmares when the railway was built! The railway construction companies who needed to save the budget and catch up with the construction period began to use cheap Chinese laborers in large quantities, consuming these "disposable consumables" that could not protect their own interests on the steep cliffs in the Rocky Mountains... 1885 On November 7th, the Pacific Railroad was knocked into the last spike (made of gold to commemorate this historical moment) in Craigellachie. So far, the Canadian National Railway runs through, and North America is another big country "from ocean to ocean". Up. In an era when the popularization rate of Chinese characters was only a few percent, the compatriots traveled far and wide for nothing but survival. The "Last Spike" attraction is an important historical testimony to the founding history of Canada, and for us Chinese, it has an extra weight.
