The town of Shaunavon is in southwest Saskatchewan at the junction of Highways 37 and 13. It is 110 kilometres from Swift Current, 163 kilometres from the Alberta border and 74 kilometres from the Montana border. Shaunavon was established in 1913 along the Canadian Pacific Railway line; the town has several nicknames including Bone Creek Basin and Oasis of the Prairies. The latter name is derived from the park located in the centre of town; the Shaunavon Formation, a stratigraphical unit of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin is named for the town. Before 1000 CE, only two distinct technological traditions were present on the Canadian plains. Archaeologists refer to them as the Avonlea phases. Besant sites first appeared on the eastern plains of Minnesota about 200 BCE. Makers of Avonlea technology first appeared in the arid southern plains of Alberta and Saskatchewan three centuries later. There is no physical or documentary evidence of a widespread and deadly "disorder" among game animals in the archaeological record, but by the 1760s HBC employees were reporting game shortages along the North Saskatchewan River.
Archaeological studies on the northern Great Plains have uncovered the influence of the fur trade from as early as the 1670s. Recognizing the arrival and impact of epidemic disease known as "virgin soil epidemic", historical experience of indigenous populations. Aboriginal traders periodically suffered from breakdown of the precarious link between Europe and Hudson Bay; when the French controlled Hudson Bay, from 1680 to 1713, they were unable to deliver supplies to the region for four years in succession. The complex interaction of the global economy and the spread of disease are illustrated by the virgin soil outbreak of smallpox amongst the Niitsitapi of Southern Alberta prior to 1750; the Cree people of the Saskatchewan parklands did not experience their virgin soil outbreak of smallpox until the 1780s. Fur traders began to come into the territory. In 1871, a severe drought brought near starvation to the whole area. Wild animals migrated in search of food and water and the white men in the area lived on gophers and potatoes.
The Indians had less. Long before the settlers or fur traders dreamed of the Cypress Hills, the land in the southwestern corner of Saskatchewan was inhabited by bands of nomadic Indians. There were the Assiniboines in the Cypress Hills, the Cree on the flat plains to the east of them, the Blackfeet toward the west in the foothills of the Rockies; the establishment of a series of French settlements across the prairies after the North-West Resistance were influenced by the immigration of large numbers of French-speaking farmers, a planned attempt to maintain a significant proportion of French-speakers in the west. Pères Royer and Gravel, in 1906–10, established most of those in the south-central and southwestern regions. French settlements had developed in the southwestern region. In 1908–10, the community of Valroy, named after Adam Dollard des Ormeaux, a Quebec hero in 1660), 70 km west of Cadillac, was established by settlers from Quebec and various French settlements on the prairies as well as by some Belgian families.
Today their descendants number about 500 in the predominantly French community of Dollard, where the parish of Ste-Jeanne-d'Arc was founded in 1908, in the nearby towns of Eastend and Shaunavon, in the surrounding rural districts at the eastern end of the Cypress Hills. By 1906 ranching had become established and was flourishing in South-Western Saskatchewan. However, the terrible winter of 1906– 1907 ended the golden years of the cattle kingdom. Extreme cold and deep snow took a terrible toll of cattle and sheep wintering out; the most notable development in ranching after the rebellion was the founding of a ranching empire by Sir John Lister-Kaye. In January 1887, this English entrepreneur purchased 100,000 acres of land distributed among ten sites along Canadian pacific west of Moose Jaw. Five of the sites—Rush Lake, Swift Current, Gull Lake, Crane Lake, Kincorth—were in southwest Saskatchewan. In the early days a fine spirit of comradeship and neighborliness prevailed among the pioneer settlers because they felt they were all equal due to their humble circumstances.
Together they experienced the rigors of wrestling a home from the wilderness. However, they found the new life a thrilling experience, the wide-open spaces of the plains exhilarating, the country held nothing but promise for ambitious young people. In spite of severe drought and hard winters the land was excellent for grazing cattle. In the late 1800s big wagon trains rolled northward, drawn by horses and oxen rumbling over the plains. Early ranchers in the district were Beardy Porce, Harry Otterson, Buck Hardin, Hugo Maguire, Wilson McGowe and Bill Huff. Among some of the early pioneer settlers who lived in this immediate area of Shaunavon were Bill Boyle, the Hifners, Thomas NcNelly, the Marshalls. Pat and Bill Ganley homesteaded the actual town site; the presence of Métis in the area around Shaunavon starts in the late 1870s, when discrimination in Manitoba forced them to move to the area near Willow Bunch and Wood Mountain. By 1885, a census identified 48 French-Métis around the Swift Current area.
However, most Métis were of nomadic nature, an exact number is hard to determine. Métis population was enriched by the presence of people from Europeans in the areas of Swift Current and Maple Creek: according to the same 1885 census, there were a total of 93 and 123 Europeans in those areas, respectively. One of the main reasons that kept the Métis in areas near current day Shaunavon was the presence of buffalo. Hunting represented a considerable activity for the group, both economically and for their regular life; the trai
Craik is a town in south central Saskatchewan, incorporated on August 1, 1907. It is strategically located along Provincial Highway 11 in the RM of Craik No. 222, 140 km southeast of Saskatoon and 117 km northwest of Regina. Craik began as a railway station along the railway line established between Regina and Saskatoon by 1890, with homesteading beginning in 1901; the route between the two main settlements was by cart prior to this. Many of the settlers came from western Europe via the United States in response to the availability of farming land. Craik was incorporated as a village in 1903, a town in 1907. Craik was part of the Davidson School Division, but after amalgamations of school divisions it became part of the Prairie South School Division. Craik is home to a kindergarten to grade 12 public school, as well as the Praxis International Institute. Craik is part of the Saskatchewan Regional Centres of Expertise and is home to the Craik Sustainable Living Project, working to build a sustainable community.
Major components of this project are the Eco-Village and Eco-Centre, as well as education and action. The town's economy is based exclusively on agriculture, although efforts by the town and RM have been made to attract and develop industry related to the principles of sustainability; the community has a compost program that includes kitchen scraps as well as seasonal yard waste, with service provided by Titan Carbon Smart Technologies. Local news coverage is provided by the Davidson Leader. Recreation facilities include a curling/skating rink, ball fields, golf course; the Craik and District Regional Park has an outdoor swimming pool as well as access to trails. The Craik Reservoir created by a dam on the Arm River is used for boating and fishing, with a bird sanctuary located at the north end of the lake; the Prairie Pioneer Museum is a municipal heritage property on the Canadian Register of Historic Places. The Craik Town Hall built in 1912-13 is on the Canadian Register of Historic Places.

Manitoba is a province at the longitudinal centre of Canada. It is considered one of the three prairie provinces and is Canada's fifth-most populous province with its estimated 1.3 million people. Manitoba covers 649,950 square kilometres with a varied landscape, stretching from the northern oceanic coastline to the southern border with the United States; the province is bordered by the provinces of Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west, the territories of Nunavut to the north, Northwest Territories to the northwest, the U. S. states of North Minnesota to the south. Aboriginal peoples have inhabited. In the late 17th century, fur traders arrived on two major river systems, what is now called the Nelson in northern Manitoba and in the southeast along the Winnipeg River system. A Royal Charter in 1670 granted all the lands draining into Hudson's Bay to the British company and they administered trade in what was called Rupert's Land. During the next 200 years, communities continued to grow and evolve, with a significant settlement of Michif in what is now Winnipeg.
The assertion of Métis identity and self-rule culminated in negotiations for the creation of the province of Manitoba. There are many factors that led to an armed uprising of the Métis people against the Government of Canada, a conflict known as the Red River Rebellion aka Resistance; the resolution of the assertion of the right to representation led to the Parliament of Canada passing the Manitoba Act in 1870 that created the province. Manitoba's capital and largest city, Winnipeg, is the eighth-largest census metropolitan area in Canada. Other census agglomerations in the province are Brandon, Portage la Prairie, Thompson; the name Manitoba is believed to be derived from the Ojibwe or Assiniboine languages. The name derives from Cree manitou-wapow or Ojibwa manidoobaa, both meaning "straits of Manitou, the Great Spirit", a place referring to what are now called The Narrows in the centre of Lake Manitoba, it may be from the Assiniboine for "Lake of the Prairie". The lake was known to French explorers as Lac des Prairies.
Thomas Spence chose the name to refer to a new republic he proposed for the area south of the lake. Métis leader Louis Riel chose the name, it was accepted in Ottawa under the Manitoba Act of 1870. Manitoba is bordered by the provinces of Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west, the territories of Nunavut to the north, the US states of North Dakota and Minnesota to the south; the province meets the Northwest Territories at the four corners quadripoint to the extreme northwest, though surveys have not been completed and laws are unclear about the exact location of the Nunavut–NWT boundary. Manitoba adjoins Hudson Bay to the northeast, is the only prairie province to have a saltwater coastline; the Port of Churchill is Canada's only Arctic deep-water port. Lake Winnipeg is the tenth-largest freshwater lake in the world. Hudson Bay is the world's second-largest bay by area. Manitoba is at the heart of the giant Hudson Bay watershed, once known as Rupert's Land, it was a vital area of the Hudson's Bay Company, with many rivers and lakes that provided excellent opportunities for the lucrative fur trade.
The province has a saltwater coastline bordering Hudson Bay and more than 110,000 lakes, covering 15.6 percent or 101,593 square kilometres of its surface area. Manitoba's major lakes are Lake Manitoba, Lake Winnipegosis, Lake Winnipeg, the tenth-largest freshwater lake in the world; some traditional Native lands and boreal forest on Lake Winnipeg's east side are a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site. Manitoba is at the centre of the Hudson Bay drainage basin, with a high volume of the water draining into Lake Winnipeg and north down the Nelson River into Hudson Bay; this basin's rivers reach far west to the mountains, far south into the United States, east into Ontario. Major watercourses include the Red, Nelson, Hayes and Churchill rivers. Most of Manitoba's inhabited south has developed in the prehistoric bed of Glacial Lake Agassiz; this region the Red River Valley, is flat and fertile. Baldy Mountain is the province's highest point at 832 metres above sea level, the Hudson Bay coast is the lowest at sea level.
Riding Mountain, the Pembina Hills, Sandilands Provincial Forest, the Canadian Shield are upland regions. Much of the province's sparsely inhabited north and east lie on the irregular granite Canadian Shield, including Whiteshell and Nopiming Provincial Parks. Extensive agriculture is found only in the province's southern areas, although there is grain farming in the Carrot Valley Region; the most common agricultural activity is cattle husbandry, followed by assorted grains and oilseed. Around 12 percent of Canada's farmland is in Manitoba. Manitoba has an extreme continental climate. Temperatures and precipitation decrease from south to north and increase from east to west. Manitoba is far from the moderating large bodies of water; because of the flat landscape, it is exposed to cold Arctic high-pressure air masses from the northwest during January and February. In the summer, air masses sometimes come out of the Southern United States, as warm humid air is drawn northward from the Gulf of Mexico.
Temperatures exceed 30 °C numerous times each summer, the combination of heat and humidity can bring the humidex value to the mid-40s. Carman, Manitoba recorded the second-highest humidex in Canada in 2007, with
Morden is a city located in the Pembina Valley region of southern Manitoba, Canada near the United States border. It is about 11 km west of the neighbouring city of Winkler. Morden, surrounded by the Rural Municipality of Stanley. Morden is the eighth largest city in Manitoba; the city is located south of Winnipeg. The communities of Morden and Winkler are referred to as Manitoba's Twin Cities, due to their close proximity, shared services, economic ties. According to Statistics Canada, the city had a population of 8,668 in 2016. Morden, along with the neighbouring city of Winkler, form an urban area with a population exceeding 22,000. Morden was founded in 1882, when the Canadian Pacific Railway built a railway line crossing the Dead Horse Creek at a place known as Cheval; this spot became a popular resting place as it was ideal to provide water for drinking and locomotives. The settlement was renamed "Morden", after Alvey Morden, on whose family's land the community was established. Morden was incorporated as a municipality on January 1, 1882.
The Manitoba government granted Morden town status in 1903 and city status in 2012. Morden has a humid continental climate with cold winters; the average high in July is 25.6 °C and the average low is 14.3 °C. Since the Morden area experiences some of the warmest temperatures in Manitoba, it has become a centre for agricultural and horticultural research. Since 1915, the city has been home to the Morden Research and Development Centre, operated by the Government of Canada; the average high in January is −10.0 °C and the average low is −19.1 °C. The highest temperature recorded in Morden was 111 °F on 11 July 1936; the coldest temperature recorded was −42.0 °C on 16 January 1993. Morden is located at the intersection of Provincial Road 432 and Manitoba Highway 3. Access to the city is possible by way of PTH 14, which ends at PTH 3 near Morden and links the city with the neighbouring city of Winkler and PTH 75, the primary commercial route between Manitoba and the United States. PTH 75, which turns into Interstate 29 at Pembina, North Dakota, provides southern Manitobans with direct access to the cities of Fargo and Kansas City.
Travelers from the U. S. can reach Morden by taking PTH 32 through Winkler. Morden is located about 34 kilometres northwest of the United States border crossing at Walhalla, North Dakota and 40 kilometres northeast of the United States border crossing at Maida, North Dakota. Morden is served by Morden Regional Aerodrome; the city has Boundary Trails Taxi. Greyhound provides a courier service called Package Express to Morden, but passenger service has been discontinued. Morden is bisected by a Canadian Pacific railway south of Stephen Street, running east–west; the Boundary Trail Railway interlines with the Canadian Pacific in Morden. The Morden-Winkler Corridor is a 9 kilometre stretch of four lane highway that separates the cities of Morden and Winkler. Over the past decade, new retail and housing developments have been constructed between the two cities. At the western edge of the corridor lies The Pembina Connection retail development. Since 2006, both national and local businesses have expanded into this development.
Restaurants, clothing stores and sport/leisure dealerships make up the majority of businesses. At the eastern edge of the corridor, service stations/travel centres and restaurants dominate the retail scene; the Boundary Trails Health Centre is located in the corridor halfway between Morden and Winkler. BTHC is a major acute care hospital that serves the residents of Morden-Winkler as well as much of south-central Manitoba. Planning is underway to construct a walking/cycling path in the corridor that will connect the cities of Morden and Winkler. Morden is governed by six councilors who are elected by residents; the current mayor of Morden is Brandon Burley. Morden is represented in the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba by Progressive Conservative MLA Cameron Friesen and in the House of Commons of Canada by Conservative MP Candice Bergen. Morden's public school system is the Western School Division, which consists of two elementary schools - Maple Leaf Elementary School and Minnewasta Elementary School, one middle school, École Morden Middle School, one high school, Morden Collegiate Institute and an Adult Education centre.
Red River Technical Vocational Area has partnered with Western School Division to provide further opportunities to its Secondary-level students. The Campus Manitoba program provides assistance to students in Morden and area who desire to obtain Post-Secondary education. In December 2005, philanthropist John Buhler donated 5 million dollars to the Western School Division for the purpose of building a large performing arts center; this was to be the largest private gift to a Canadian public school. However, accusations of cost overruns and opposition to the gift from many people in the city led to the school division abandoning the project in 2008, to Buhler's dismay; the 1.25 million, handed over was not refunded, was used by the school for other purposes. Many others demanded. Western School Division use

Not to be confused with Canadian Transportation Agency. Transport Canada is the department within the Government of Canada responsible for developing regulations and services of transportation in Canada, it is part of the Transportation and Communities portfolio. The current Minister of Transport is Marc Garneau. Transport Canada is headquartered in Ontario; the Department of Transport was created in 1935 by the government of William Lyon Mackenzie King in recognition of the changing transportation environment in Canada at the time. It merged three departments: the former Department of Railways and Canals, the Department of Marine and Fisheries, the Civil Aviation Branch of the Department of National Defence under C. D. Howe, who would use the portfolio to rationalize the governance and provision of all forms of transportation, he created Trans-Canada Air Lines. The Department of Transport Act came into force November 2, 1936. Prior to a 1994 federal government reorganization, Transport Canada had a wide range of operational responsibilities including the Canadian Coast Guard, the Saint Lawrence Seaway and seaports, as well as Via Rail and CN Rail.
Significant cuts to Transport Canada at that time resulted in CN Rail being privatized, the coast guard being transferred to Fisheries and Oceans, the seaway and various ports and airports being transferred to local operating authorities. Transport Canada emerged from this process as a department focused on policy and regulation rather than transportation operations. In 2004, Transport Canada introduced non-passenger screening to enhance both airport and civil aviation security. Transport Canada's headquarters are located in Ottawa at Place de Ville, Tower C. Transport Canada has regional headquarters in: Vancouver – Government of Canada Building on Burrard Street and Robson Street Edmonton – Canada Place, 9700 Jasper Avenue NW Winnipeg – Macdonald Building, 344 Edmonton Street Toronto – Government of Canada Building, 4900 Yonge Street Dorval – Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport, 700 Place Leigh-Capreol Moncton – Heritage Building, 95 Foundry Street Minister of Transport Marc GarneauDeputy Minister, Transport Canada Michael KeenanAssociate Deputy Minister, Thao Pham Assistant Deputy Minister and Security, Kevin Brousseau Associate Assistant Deputy Minister and Security, Aaron McCrombie Assistant Deputy Minister, Pierre-Marc Mongeau Associate Assistant Deputy Minister and Lead, Navigation Protection Act Review, Catherine Higgens Assistant Deputy Minister, Lawrence Hanson Assistant Deputy Minister, Corporate Services, André Lapointe Assistant Deputy Minister, Natasha Rascanin Director General, Corporate Secretariat, Tom Oommen Director General and Marketing, Dan Dugas Regional Director General, Atlantic Region, Ann Mowatt Regional Director General, Quebec Region, Albert Deschamps Regional Director General, Ontario Region, Tamara Rudge Regional Director General and Northern Region, Michele Taylor Regional Director General, Pacific Region, Robert Dick Departmental General Counsel, Henry K.

Each inspector with delegated power from the Minister of Transport receives official credentials to exercise their power, as shown on the right. These inspectors are public officers identified within the Criminal Code of Canada; the Motor Vehicle Safety Act was established in 1971 in order to create safety standards for cars in Canada. The department acts as the federal government's funding partner with provincial transport ministries on jointly-funded provincial transportation infrastructure projects for new highways. TC manage a database of traffic collisions in Canada. Transport Canada's role in railways include: railway safety surface and intermodal security strategies for rail travel accessibility safety of federally regulated railway bridges safety and security of international bridges and tunnels Inspecting and testing traffic control signals, grade crossing warning systems rail operating rules regulations and services for safe transport of dangerous goods Canadian Transport Emergency Centre to assist emergency response and handling dangerous goods emergenciesFollowing allegations by shippers of service level deterioration, on April 7, 2008, the federal government of Canada launched a review of railway freight service within the country.
Transport Canada, managing the review, plans to investigate the relationships between Canadian shippers and the rail industry with regards to the two largest railroad companies in the country, Canadian Pacific Railway and Canadian National Railway. On June 26, 2013, the Fair Rail Freight Service Act became law, a response to the Rail Freight Service Review’s Final Report. Transport Canada is responsible for the waterways inside and surrounding Canada; these responsibilities include: responding and investigating marine accidents within Canadian waters enforcing marine acts and regulations establishing and enforcing marine personnel standards and pilotage Marine Safety Marine Security regulating the operation of marine vessels in Canadian watersAs of 2003 the Office of Boating Safety and the Navigable Waters Protection Program were transferred back to Transport Canada.
