Rideau Canal, Ontario, Canada, June 20, 2004

The Rideau Canal is my contribution for the event.

The Rideau Canal joins Kingston and Ottawa Ontario with a series of scenic lakes, rivers, and canals.  Conceived after the War of 1812, in case America tries to invade Canada again, to be a war-time supply route to Kingston and the Great Lakes from Montreal.  Construction started in 1826 by Colonel John By, to change an old Indian canoe portage route into one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century.  Completed in 1832 with a total of 49 locks joining 202 kilometers.  It is now the oldest continuously operated canal in North America, working today much as they did then.  The Rideau Canal is a National Historic Site of Canada and Canadian Heritage River it is slated to be a World heritage Site in a few years.

For more information see the Rideau Canal Waterway.
