“The French claim all the country within the Hudson’s Bay Company’s southern limits and the brown line”, an entity just recently privatized.

Perhaps this border shown here as the 45° latitude explains the location of the Old Annapolis Road which it seems to straddle somewhat, beyond the fact that it connected Nova Scotia’s old capital of Annapolis to the new capital of Halifax. Perhaps it explains much more, considering the placement of Greenwood (CFB), Halifax Airport (YHZ) and Windsor, all just below 45°.

It would be amazing to be able to preserve the Old Annapolis Road ROW as much as possible for future generations, perhaps some kind of restoration as a hiking trail especially the parts that lie hidden before it’s completely lost to the woods.
