p.2 Trade of Upper Canada With the United States - Inland Navigation - gives facts and figures; ...."The Toronto Council of Trade recently remarked that, in return for a reciprocity the Americans would have been compelled through their necessities to grant, Canada has allowed them the free navigation of our canals and the St. Lawrence, while allowing them to exclude our boats and shipping from their canals and inland waters. If a provision had been made for the admission of Canadian bottoms to American registers, an almost incalculable impetus would have been given to the progress of yet undeveloped tracts of Canadian land lying along the east and southern shores of Lake Huron, as well as to the already established ship building ports of Canada."
