Introduction for Talk Show (Script)
Good _____ (time of day). My name is Jefferson McMaster and I am the host of CBC Talk Show. Today’s date is April 25, 1960; exactly 1 year after the St. Lawrence Seaway was completed. Today’s topic for discussion is none other than the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway and how it affected North America in general. Here with me today, we have the honourable Prime Minister St. Laurent who contributed to the Seaway after Prime Minister King passed away; we also have a representative of a First Nation from the Kahwanake group. Lastly, we’ve also contacted the American President during the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway, President Eisenhower, but he declined the invitation. Instead we have a representative that worked co-sided with the American President, Claudia Smith. But before we start the discussion, let me talk a little bit about the St. Lawrence Seaway so everyone is on the same boat.
Canada and the UD decided to create a way of transporting goods to each other efficiently. This discussion about the construction of a seaway has been around for many years, dating back to 1783. The decision to build the seaway was implanted on the rapids of the St. Lawrence River, which connects Canada and Eastern USA. The seaway allows the movement of consumer to reach markets from Canada to international countries too. Both Canada and USA were involved heavily in the building of the seaway while Canada spent twice as much as America due to the fact that Canada started the seaway before-hand while the Americans waited for approval from the congress.
1) Do you think the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway will impact the global market?
2) Was the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway neccessary?
