Canadian Pacific Railway
The contract for construction of the railway
was signed Oct. 21, 1880, the surveys having already been carried out
under the direction of Sandford Fleming. Work was begun on the railway
in May, 1881, and the last spike driven by Sir Donald A. Smith (now Lord
Strathcona), Nov. 7, 1885. A summary of the evolution of the project
will be found in Johnson's First Things in Canada. =Index=: (Sir John A Macdonald era)
