Welcome to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island...birthplace of Canada...St. Dunstan's Basilica in the background. In the foreground, one of many statues around Charlottetown depicting historical people and happenings. The Charlottetown Conference leading to the Act of Confederation in 1867 is the theme. The Province of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia all became "Canada". Six more provinces and three territories joined later.

In June we travelled by rail from Vancouver (British Columbia) to Montreal (Quebec) where we spent five nights. We then took an overnight train to Moncton (New Brunswick). Next we drove to Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton (Nova Scotia), and flew home from Halifax.

Fantastic statue, with a wonderful Basilica in the background. Great photo, thank you gemstone.

Sorry, MLBj, I missed you...we must have crossed while commenting. The train to Toronto was great...except that they keep travelling through the night and while you're sleeping you miss all of that great scenery! LOL From Toronto to Montreal was a day train so you did get to see the countryside...but it is very crowded with business day trippers. We would not recommend the train from Montreal to Halifax. The cars are old and really smelly...I had to use a puffer within five minutes of entering our cabin...one that I generally use less than once a month. Plus, they ran out of entrees at dinner. Some people had to take what they were given...and I couldn't stomach the spicy chicken I had.
Thank you for popping by and taking the time to comment. Faye :)))

It is really well done, Suzy...the stances, the folds of the clothing, the obvious concentration...have a look at the second link in my comment to Ardy and look at the detail in the face. We were impressed by the work of the artist. So, would you have attended the meetings...or gone to the circus? LOL ;D

I feel as if I'm spying on their conversation!
An excellent piece, and thanks much for the history.

Thank you, Ardy...I'd much rather go to the circus than attend a meeting! LOL

I believe the following statue down at the harbour depicts William Pope rowing out to the "Queen Victoria" to bring delegates ashore for the Conference. :)

You won't get the "end bit", lela, until you run a railway aaaaalllll the way across to the Pacific Ocean. ;D

You're very welcome, Pam. Thank YOU. :)))

Since reading The Edge by Dick Francis I've always fancied that journey. Not with the rest of the story, only the train and the scenery!

Thank you for both a visually interesting puzzle and a bit of Canadian history, Faye. :-))
