Surveyors at the Montreal River Camp
in Ontario lay out the course for the Trans Canada Highway.
During the Second World War, COs helped to build the highway
through parts of Ontario. These surveyors helped to ensure that
the highway was straight and level. At the end of the video,
you can see trucks working on the construction of the highway.
