Canadian Regions: A Geography of Canada

By Donald F. Putnam | Go to book overview

in the emerging settlement areas discussed in this chapter but, apart from similarities in certain major problems, they have little coherence. They have not, for instance, been able to get the Ontario Government to construct adequate transprovincial highways. Northwestern Ontario often feels more akin to Western Canada than to the eastern and southern parts of the province. There are even those who advocate the secession of this region to form a new province to be named Aurora. Professor Lower ( 1948) advocates the creation of two new provinces and the abandonment of the far north to the care of the federal government. No doubt northern resources have received some unwise and shortsighted administration from the provincial capital. This has, in no small measure, been the direct result of ignorance of the geographical realities. The major natural resources are forests, minerals and water power but they are by no means uniformly distributed. Processing and manufacturing, based upon mine and forest products, are important and will become greater in the future. All of these activities tend toward a highly nucleated urban type of settlement. Agriculture is and will continue to be a minor industry. Combined with primary forestry, however, it may help to support dispersed settlement in certain areas. Ontario may be a province in spite of geographical differences, but it can develop fully only when these differences are recognized and understood. At present, however, Northern Ontario stands in need of intensive geographical research.
