Synopsis:

It was a megaproject half a century in the making -- possibly the
largest construction operation, and certainly the largest relocation
project, in Canadian history, and a technological and engineering
marvel that stands as one of the most ambitious borderlands
undertakings ever embarked upon by two countries. The planning and
building of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project is one of the
defining episodes in North American history.



The project began with transnational negotiations that spanned two
world wars and the formative years of the Cold War and included a
failed attempt to construct an all-Canadian seaway, which was scuttled
by US national security fears. Once an agreement was reached, the
massive engineering and construction operation began, as did the
large-scale rehabilitation scheme to move people and infrastructure
away from the thousands of acres of land that would soon be
flooded.



While the story of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project is too
often relegated to a footnote in Canadian history, Negotiating a
River
looks at the profound impacts of this megaproject, from the
complex diplomatic negotiations, political manoeuvring, and
environmental diplomacy to the implications on national identities and
transnational relations.

Daniel Macfarlane is a Visiting Scholar in the
School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University. In 2013, he was the
Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Canadian Studies at Michigan State
University.
