816-Lancaster Farming, Saturday, October 23, 1993
On our Canadian trip our train
with sleeper cars took us to Prince
Rupert. This town was founded in
1906 and they ship grain, pulp,
lumber and coal. Many Indians
live here and they can trace their
history back 10,000 years.
We had a bus tour of the town
and then drove to the North Pacif
ic Cannery Village. It is no longer
operating but we saw the old
machinery that was used for can
ning fish. We also saw the houses
of die workers and had a salmon
In Prince Rupert we went to a
Safeway grocery store, and I was
very impressed not only with the
size but also with the abundance
of fresh produce in the grocery
store. There was an Indian
Museum near our hotel and we
walked there in the afternoon.
The next morning we arose at
5:30 in order to board the “Queen
of the North” which was a very
large ferry. We had a 15-hour ride
to Port Hardy. Besides the water
and trees everywhere, there was
both a restaurant and a cafeteria on
CHOP-RUT TWO, me.
Quality American Workmanship!

movies during the day and had
entertainment in the Dogwood
Lounge. We met a couple from
Netherlands and another couple
who had a travel trailer and they
had to pay $5OO for the days jour
ney on the ferry.
Next day we saw a 22-ton burl
that grew at the base of a
350-year-old spruce. Parts of Van

of our hotels were so elaborate.
