Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior - Monday, May 19, 2014

 Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior

May 19, 2014  -----  For over 160 years eight North Shore lighthouses have directed Shaganash Lighthousevessels to and from the Lakehead thatcontinues today. Thunder Bay  a transhipment point between rail, road and our great inland sea, continues to operate, at a somewhat slower pace. From the historic docklands of the East End to the towering grain elevators in the intercity area, Thunder Bay has prospered and developed because of its maritime roots.

Enthusiasts might be aware of the local lighthouse lore upon Canada’s greatest inland sea, but the majorities know Superior as an inhospitable place. In fact this country was built, following a charted route to-and-from the Lakehead, which saw immigrants and resources move west and later commodities return.

Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior is taking the opportunity, while petitioning the government, to provide safe access to North Shore lighthouse, so that visitors may safely visit.
