Presidential Visit to Canada

The following is the text of the address given by the President, Professor Happold, at celebrations to mark the centenary of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering held in Montreal in May. The commemorative medal presented to the Society was illustrated in last month’s issue of The Structural Engineer (p221). It is said that, when the first French settlers sailed up the St. Lawrence River, they were so appalled by the wildness of the country they saw that they wrote across the map ’Acanada’-here is nothing. Yet, we have come to learn that this nation has great resources and its development by man was- and is - inevitable.
