Making A Mine In Canada


The speaker as the spokesman of that great, only partially developed half continent which we call The North. The speaker's regard of himself as simply a deputy of the great army of friends and co-workers in the North who, in the course of the last thirty years, have struggled to open the doors to the greater, the richer, the more happy and the truly magnificent Canada of the future. Some magnificent economic figures regarding production mining. The enormous strides the industry has made. What mining has done for Canada. Canada, after four years of floundering; the need to buckle her belt and get going. The issue of whether we can depend on wheat as we did in the first quarter of this century. Putting our faith in mass production? Depending upon secondary things such as organization and high finance and food distribution and taking in one another's washing? Canada having passed the day for protecting monopolies which misuse power. The real job of Canada on the Northern frontiers, often ignored by the leaders of Canada. Upon what the speaker bases his conclusion that the North can save Canada. The influence of Canada's mineral industry in saving the national ship. A description of the North country, with several personal anecdotes and experiences. The development of mining in the North. Fighting an election in order to get a railway in. Building a mining town. Showing has fast the North country grows. Some dollar figures to show exactly what mining has done for Canada. What we could do in the North country with a fleet of aeroplanes. The speaker's formation of an exploration company with a bunch of aeroplanes and a hundred prospectors. 34 bases established from coast to coast through the planes; pushing through the North country; bringing that country ahead a hundred years at least. The youth of the country that wants to go North. Experiencing the North country. The experience of the Northern Aerial Minerals Exploration Limited. Some words about Canadians backing mining enterprises and Canadian engineers. The assay plans for Kirkland Lake. Potential development in Timmins, Noranda and Rouyn. Opening the North country. The speaker's belief that none of the Governments have been awake to the fact of what the North country means. Some words of Ramsay Macdonald. The need to include the North in any national planning that Canada does. What a Northern plan can mean to the youth of Canada.
