Nova Scotia considered as a field for emigration

“There is not a finished canal in Nova Scotia, but there are two now in course of construction. As early as 1825, operations were commenced for connecting the harbour of Halifax with Cobequid Bay, by means of the waters of the Shubenacadie River, the Dartmouth Lakes, and the “Shubenecadie Canal.”
