Halfway Point of the Trans-Canada Highway
Chippewa Falls, Ontario
The Trans-Canada Highway is the longest in the world, stretching 4860 miles -- or umpteen thousand kilometers -- from St Johns, Newfoundland to Vancouver, British Columbia. Its mid-point is marked by a monument to Dr. Perry E. Doolittle, "Father of the Trans-Canada Highway" and the first man in Canada to own a car. A true visionary, Doolittle was dead for nearly 30 years before the highway became official in 1962. Dr. Doolittle, we salute you!
