- The history of Toronto harbour and the defence of the Great Lakes region has two main elements. First, various military planners in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries perceived merit in establishing a naval base at Toronto, although for the most part they were unable to fulfil their goals. Second, debate on Toronto's potential always occurred within a broader discussion ofthe region's strategic requirements. This paper will explore these two themes from the end of the American Revolution, when the British first took an interest in Toronto's naval potential, to 1870, when imperial forces withdrew from central Canada.
