THE MIGHTY FRASER
Our past, present, and future are linked with the Fraser. The past saw fur-traders, the goldrush of 1858, and early settlers. The present sees waters teeming with migrating salmon and a highway and railways confined to the gorge carved by the river. The Fraser, beautiful, bountiful, and powerful, must always flow in the pattern of our future.
