Heritage Week Feb 17-13, 2014
Water is not just for drinking. For thousands of years, the simple fact that water is buoyant has allowed us, and our cargo, to get from one place to another. Before there was the wheel, there was the boat.
Because water floats our boats, we live close to water whenever we can. British Columbia is blessed with an abundance of water, and most of our towns and cities have been built next to lakes and rivers, at the ocean’s edge, or where rivers enter the sea. When we built roads and railways on land, they linked bodies of water to create a complete transportation network. Even today our economic future depends on the continuing availability of efficient and effective shipping to reach the world’s markets.
