A year before the inauguration of the Seaway, it is feared that the Quebec metropolis will be disadvantaged by the new situation port.
It is precisely the numerous loads which arrive and depart from the port which have allowed Montreal to become the metropolis of Canada.
A quote from the narrator André Hébert
Experts suggest that Toronto would benefit more from the Seaway since a large part of trade would now be routed to the Great Lakes.
Others believe that this major achievement would allow Montreal to become a port as important as New York with an increase in maritime traffic, the size of boats and industrial development.< /p>
