Description

In Views of the Salish Sea, author Howard Macdonald Stewart explores the many ways in which the Strait of Georgia has influenced human affairs, as well as how people have changed the Strait, in a complex two-way relationship that continues today. Colonization and the commodification of the Strait’s resources launched an influx of settlements around the sea that began in earnest in the decades before the First World War, often at the expense of Indigenous populations.

Coal mining developed earliest and grew rapidly. Fishing, lumbering and metal mining were also established by the 1880s and soon experienced exponential growth. From the earliest salmon canneries to today’s cruise ship industry, all have depended on the Strait to

ensure economic prosperity and the easy movement of people and goods.
