One thought on “Carleton To Host Canada Tech Forum

  1. Not to be picky but do these folks realize that “North of 49” does not include Ottawa, Toronto or Waterloo? Or Montreal, Quebec City, the Maritimes and most of Newfoundland?

    From the Manitoba/Ontario border west, the 49th parallel forms the US/Canada border with a dip at the western end to keep all of Vancouver Island in Canada. In Ontario, the 49th is north of Lake Superior – are they thinking of making Attawapiskat or Sioux Lookout the new global tech hub? Labrador would also be eligible but not the majority of the island of Newfoundland.

    “54º 40′ or Fight” was the American slogan related to the drawing of the boundary between Western Canada and the States. The boundary east of Lake of the Woods had already been established. The boundary was finally settled on the 49th parallel in the Oregon Treaty of 1846.

    Are history and geography no longer mandatory classes in high school?
