Coal Mining in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. Music By IIIrd Tyme Out, Coal Mine Blues. Early Mining The southeastern part of Cape Breton Island is home to the Sydney Coal Field, an extensive underground coal seam extending at an angle from the shore beneath the seafloor of the Cabot Strait. This large deposit of high-sulphur coal was first extracted by French soldiers from Fortress Louisbourg in 1720 at nearby Port Morien. A major coal industry developed during the 19th century, becoming the largest energy project in British North America at its height of production. The largest integrated steel mill in the British Commonwealth was constructed on Sydney Harbor in 1901. The coal and steel industries went into decline following World War II and never fully recovered. They were nationalized by the federal and provincial governments during the late 1960s with the intention of closing them by the 1980s, however production increased in the 1970s as a result of rising world oil and steel prices. By the 1990s, environmental degradation (see Sydney Tar Ponds) and economic ruin was facing the industrial Cape Breton region. The steel mill and last coal mine were closed in 2001 and the area has been struggling to adapt. While the urban area of eastern Cape Breton County influenced by the coal and steel industries came to be referred to as "Industrial Cape Breton", many rural communities in the rest of Cape Breton Island have been relatively stable economically, largely due to the mix of fishing, forestry, small-scale agriculture, and a growing tourism industry as a result of the spectacular scenery found throughout the island. In 1914 the SCOTIA steel mill was closed and in 1920 both DOMCO/DISCO and SCOTIA were merged into a new company named British Empire Steel and Coal Company (BESCO). The copyright of this section might be in question and is likely from UMWA material. IN MARCH OF 1925, Cape Breton coal miners were receiving $3.65 in daily wages and had been working part-time for more than three years. They burned company coal to heat company houses illuminated by company electricity. Their families drank company water, were indebted to the company "Pluck Me" store and were financially destitute as evidenced by the company "Bob Tailed Sheet". Local clergy spoke of children clothed in flour sacks and dying of starvation from the infamous "four cent meal". The miners had fought continuously since 1909 for decent working conditions, an eight hour day and a living wage. The British Empire Steel Corporation (BESCO) was controlled by President Roy M. Wolvin and Vice-President J.E. McClurg who defended these conditions by frankly stating, DEVCO and SYSCO On July 7, 1967 the Cape Breton Development Corporation (DEVCO) was created and on March 30, 1968 all DOSCO mines were expropriated for $12 million by DEVCO. At the same time, the provincial government formed the Sydney Steel Corporation (SYSCO) and took over DOSCO's steel mill, with the aim being to gradually control the shut down of this industry. DEVCO brought in new tourism initiatives throughout Cape Breton Island and funded various community economic development programs, however politics and other factors such as the 1973 oil crisis brought about by the OPEC embargo following the Yom Kippur War saw demand for coal increase dramatically, particularly for electrical generation. The federal government reversed course and chose to expand, rather than retract, the production of coal and opened new mines and modernized its DOSCO-inherited properties to serve new electrical generating stations. During the 1980s the provincial government also modernized the steel mill, however both coal and steel encountered production and financial difficulties in the 1990s and DEVCO and SYSCO both decommissioned their operations by the turn of the century or shortly thereafter. The last underground coal mine on Cape Breton Island closed in November 2001. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

North Sydney And Sydney Mines Cape Breton Nova Scotia (June 16/09)
 
04:15
North Sydney And Sydney Mines Cape Breton Nova Scotia (Music By Dave Matthews Band You And Me) North Sydney (2001 pop.: 6,775) is a community in Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Located on the north side of Sydney Harbour, along the eastern coast of Cape Breton Island, North Sydney is an important port in Atlantic Canada as it is the western terminus of the Marine Atlantic ferry service. It acts as the marine link for the Trans-Canada Highway to the island of Newfoundland, which is why North Sydney's nickname is called The Gateway To Newfoundland. Marine Atlantic ferries currently operate from North Sydney's terminal to the ports of Port aux Basques and Argentia. The company is one of the largest employers in the area. History North Sydney emerged as a major shipbuilding centre in the early 1800s building many brigs and brigantines for the English market and later moving on to larger Barques and, in 1851, the full rigged ship Lord Clarendon, the largest wooden ship ever built in Cape Breton. Wooden shipbuilding declined in the 1860s but the same decade saw the arrival of increasing numbers of steamships drawn to North Sydney for bunker coal. By 1870 it was the fourth largest port in Canada dealing in ocean-going vessels, drawn for coal and due to the fact that The Western Union cable office had been established here in 1875. The railroad came to Cape Breton Island in 1891. At this time there were 2,513 people in North Sydney, compared to 2,417 in Sydney. In 1898 North Sydney was chosen by the Reid-Newfoundland Company as the Canadian mainland terminal for a ferry service to Newfoundland; in June of that year the SS Bruce sailed from Port Aux Basques, it was the first ship to make that run. World Wars During the first and second World wars, North Sydney played an important role in the relay of information from Europe to both Ottawa and Washington. North Sydney was home to a Western Union Cable office. It was here where coded messages were sent from overseas then relayed on to the rest of North America. On the morning of November 10, 1918, the office received a top-secret coded message from Europe. It stated that effective at 11 am the next day (November 11, 1918) all fighting would cease on land, sea and in the air. Therefore the people of North Sydney, in particular Mrs. Annie Butler Smith, were the first to know about the end of the Great War. It is reported that on the night on November 10, 1918, over 200 servicemen celebrated by marching through the streets of the town to celebrate the end of the war, one day before the rest of the world knew. Sydney Mines (2001 population: 7,312) is a former town in Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Sydney Mines Founded in 1784 and incorporated as a town in 1889, has a rich history in coal production, although mining activity has now ceased. Geography Sydney Mines in Nova ScotiaSydney Mines lies immediately northeast of North Sydney and faces Sydney across Sydney Harbour. Sydney Mines was once a major coal-producing community. Mining began locally in 1766, and in 1830 systematic operations were undertaken. One of the area mines extended about 5 miles (8 km) out under the sea. The last mine was closed in 1975. As of 1991, the population was 7,551. The current demographics map Sydney Mines at 95% caucasian (White), and 5% Jamaican (Black). Sydney Mines is on the northern side of Sydney Harbor, near the mouth. It was earlier known as the Mines due to the coal mines abundant nearby. Although mining has been carried on since 1724, the first shaft for the General Mining Association in Sydney Mines was sunk in 1830. Manufacturing enterprises included corrugated steel culverts and the British Canadian Co-operative Society Limited, operating a dairy and a bakery. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

EPISODE 19: Here is something completely different - exploring some sections of unearthed coal mines underneath Stellarton! Strip-mining goes deep enough to pass thru the old abandoned Foord Seam coal mines from a century or two ago! Special thanks to the subscriber who recommended this site. Westray Disaster Documentary found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzrhEx7Gq1g Abandoned Mine Hunting is somewhat of a cross between the hobby of urban exploration, caving (spelunking), and history enthusiast. If this is your kind of thing, be sure to subscribe so you will always be informed of each new episode. IF YOU KNOW OF AN ABANDONED MINE IN ATLANTIC CANADA, we'd love to hear from you. Send a private message. We may just come and do an explore and episode featuring your site ! ** BEST VIEWED using the YouTube app on a full size SmartTV ** SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines or mine sites can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 75+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely explore an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer. If you don't know what you're doing, STAY OUT STAY ALIVE is the best policy. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

Cape Breton Miner’s Museum
 
04:01
Across Canada, coal is being used less and less as a source of energy, but for generations, it was a big part of people’s lives, and an industry which employed thousands. That was especially the case on the island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia, which is why the Cape Breton Miner’s Museum, which was built in 1967 above a former coal mine, continues to celebrate that tradition today. In Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Jennie Bovard got a tour.

A Bit More Of Sydney Nova Scotia
 
05:06
A Bit More Of Sydney Nova Scotia,Music By The Eagles The Boys Of Summer. Sydney (2001 population: 24,115) is a Canadian urban community in the province of Nova Scotia. It is situated on the east coast of Cape Breton Island and is administratively part of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Sydney was incorporated in 1904 and dissolved on August 1, 1995 when it was merged into the regional municipality. Sydney is the largest urban centre on Cape Breton Island. Together with Sydney Mines, North Sydney, New Waterford and Glace Bay it forms the Industrial Cape Breton region. History It was founded by Col. Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres in 1785, and named in honour of Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney (also the Home Secretary in the British cabinet at the time). Lord Sydney appointed Col. DesBarres governor of the new colony of Cape Breton Island. Col. DesBarres landed a group that consisted primarily of poor English citizens and disbanded soldiers. A group of Loyalists from the state of New York, fleeing the aftermath of the American Revolution, were added to the immigrants upon their arrival in the neighbouring colony of Nova Scotia. The site DesBarres chose for the new settlement was along the Southwest Arm of Sydney Harbour, a drowned valley of the Sydney River, which forms part of Spanish Bay. Between 1784-1820, Sydney was the capital of the British colony of Cape Breton Island. The colony was disbanded and merged with neighbouring Nova Scotia as part of the British government's desire to develop the abundant coal fields surrounding Sydney Harbour; the leases being held by the Duke of York. In 1826, the leases were transferred to the General Mining Association and industrial development around Sydney began to take shape. By the early twentieth century Sydney became home to one of the world's largest steel plants, fed by the numerous coal mines in the area under the ownership of the Dominion Coal Company. Sydney's economy was a significant part of Industrial Cape Breton with its steel plant and harbour and railway connections adjoining the coal mining towns of Glace Bay, New Waterford, Sydney Mines and Reserve Mines. The economic boom brought about by industrialization saw the community incorporate in 1903. By the late 1960s the coal and steel industries had fallen on hard times and were taken over by the federal and provincial governments and both industries were permanently closed by the end of 2001. Forced to diversify its economy, Sydney has examined a variety of economic development possibilities including tourism and culture, light manufacturing and information technology. Sydney Harbour played an important role during World War II after a Royal Canadian Navy base, HMCS Protector, was established to stage supply convoys bound for Europe. They tended to be slower convoys and had the prefix SC (for Slow Convoy). Convoy SC-7 typified the dangers inherent with the Nazi U-boats off the coast of Cape Breton and Newfoundland during the Battle of the Atlantic. Sydney's coal shipping and steel manufacturing were essential ingredients in the Allied victory, however federal Minister of Industry, C.D. Howe favoured Central Canada's steel industry given its proximity to a larger workforce and less exposure to coastal attack. The lack of significant war-time investment in Sydney's steel plant led to its decline after the war from which it was unable to recover. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Johnny Miles Wins 1926 Boston Marathon
 
04:56
Johnny Miles Born in Halifax, West Yorkshire, he moved with his family to Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia. At age 11 he supported his family by working in the coal mines. As a teenager he won local races. He won the Canadian five-mile (8 km) championship in 1925 and finished third in the one-mile later that day. He also won the Halifax Herald 10-mile (16 km) competition in the same year. Miles was employed delivering groceries throughout the countryside by horse and wagon. To stay in shape he would run behind the wagon wearing heavy boots. John Christopher Miles Nickname(s) Johnny, Jack Born October 30, 1905 Halifax, West Yorkshire, England Died June 15, 2003 (aged 97) Hamilton, Ontario Height 5' 6-1/2" Weight 133 lb (60 kg) In 1926 Miles's neighbours raised a few hundred dollars to send him to the Boston Marathon by train. This would be Miles's debut marathon, having never run a race longer than 10 miles. The field at the 1926 Boston Marathon included four-time winner Clarence DeMar and 1924 Olympic champion Albin Stenroos, whom Miles idolized. Miles arrived at the marathon as an unknown, competing in a handmade singlet adorned with a maple leaf and the letters "NS" for Nova Scotia and a pair of 98-cent sneakers. Stenroos attempted to break away after the first few miles, leaving DeMar behind. Miles stayed with him until Heartbreak Hill, at which point he passed him. Miles completed the race in a time of 2:25:40. His time was so fast that the course was remeasured and found to be 176 yards short. Miles attempted to defend his title at the 1927 Boston Marathon, but dropped out early due to problems with his shoes. In 1929 Miles returned to Boston and won the marathon in a time of 2:33:08. Miles competed in two more Boston Marathons, never finishing higher than 10th. Coached by John W. Miles his father Achievements and titles National finals 1925 Canadian 5-mile champion 1928 Canadian 10000m champion Olympic finals 1928 Summer Olympics 1932 Summer Olympics Medal record Men's Athletics British Empire Games Bronze medal – third place 1930 Hamilton Marathon Johnny Miles Wins 1926 Boston Marathon , he was from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia,Canada Biography Johnny Miles was born October 30, 1905 in England. Soon afterwards, his family moved to Sydney Mines, Cape Breton. Johnny began his running career in 1922 as a sixteen-year-old. By 1925, he was the Canadian champion in the 5-mile distance, and was considered Nova Scotia"s top distance runner. In 1926, Johnny arrived at his first Boston Marathon and was pegged as a "curly-haired, befreckled, saucy-nosed, 22-year-old" who had never competed in a race more than ten miles long. Before the race began, the big story was the match-up between Clarence DeMar and Albin Stenroos, two of the greatest marathoners in the world. But the "unknown" from Nova Scotia shocked everyone by winning the Marathon. Miles won it again in 1929, making him the only Nova Scotian to win the Boston Marathon twice, an unbelievable feat. Johnny Miles was also a member of the Canadian Olympic Track Team in 1928 and 1932 where he placed 16th and 14th, respectively. He also won a bronze medal as a member of the 1930 British Empire Games Track Team. Miles received several prestigious awards in recognition of his talents. In 1929, he received the Will Cloney International Award for Sports, and in 1969 was inducted into Canada"s Sports Hall of Fame. He received the Dalhousie Award in 1971. In 1983, he was awarded the Order of Canada, this country"s highest honor. Johnny Miles holds a rightful place in Nova Scotia's sport history, He is an original Sport Hall of Fame inductee.

Sydney Mines Steel Plant
 
03:16
Sydney Mines Steel Plant , was located in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. Fact: The steel plant at Sydney Mines was built to feed the Trenton Works of the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Corporation (SCOTIA) Fact: The Scotia plant in Sydney Mines was a basic iron and steel producer feeding its finishing mills to New Glasgow, N.S. Fact: The Sydney Mines Plant was about one third the size of the plant constructed simultaneously by Disco at Sydney. The Sydney Mines Steel Plant 1902 – 1921 by Sydney S. Slaven A stroll through the barren fields between Pitt St. and the Atlantic Ocean at Sydney Mines reveals two odd coloured mounds, one reddish and the other white. These are piles of iron ore and limestone, the only legacy of a large steel plant that operated on this site for almost twenty years. The steel plant at Sydney Mines was built to feed the Trenton Works of the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Corporation (SCOTIA) in order to meet the demands of the rapidly expanding railroads of North America. The plant was ideally located in Sydney Mines because Cape Breton was the most easterly termination point of the trans continental railways. Sydney Mines also provided a waterway to the world. The Trenton Works, near New Glasgow, produced metal rail cars, axle and wheels. Prior to the Sydney Mines Plant, a primitive iron and steel plant had begun operations at Ferrona near New Glasgow. Unfortunately, the technology was uneven and the local iron ore was of poor quality. In 1879 a Siemens Open Hearth Furnace produced the first steel in Canada here although it was noted to be a “mild steel.” In 1893 Scotia acquired the iron ore mine at Wabana, Nfld. They sold a half interest in the mine to the Dominion Steel Corporation who intended to construct a steel plant at Sydney. The proceeds from this sale were used to buy out the General Mining Associations coalmines and to construct a steel plant using the most advanced technology of the day. Construction of the plant began in 1901 and it began operating in 1902. Iron ore was shipped from Wabana while the limestone came from a quarry at Point Edward, (still used as a swimming hole by local youths.) The set up of the plant provided for a very efficient operation. A battery of Coke Ovens was built next to the Princess Coal Mine. Close by was a Blast Furnace capable of an output of 300 tons of iron daily. This iron fed into three 50-ton Open Hearth Furnaces. There was also a 30-ton Metal Mixer on site although the Open Hearths had the ability to accept iron directly from the Blast Furnace. There was also a Compressor Press Shop located in line with the Ingot Casting Floor and could handle 5 to 30 ton ingots. The Sydney Mines Plant was about one third the size of the plant constructed simultaneously by Disco at Sydney. The Scotia Plant employed about 1000 to 1500 steelworkers. The population of Sydney Mines increased from 3000 to 5000 with the arrival of the mill. For the first twelve years the plant was moderately successful as it had a ready market for steel at the Trenton Works. However, a hoped for offshore pig iron market never materialized. The first part of the Great War, 1914 – 1918, was a boom time because a munitions factory was built at Trenton and this took the entire product the Sydney Mines Plant could produce. 1920 saw the establishment of the largest corporation in Canada by a British syndicate known as the British Empire Steel Corporation, BESCO. Included were the steel plants at both Sydney Mines and Sydney. At about the same time the steel industry went into a recession. (Many historians claim the Great Depression started in Cape Breton tens years before the rest of the world.) Besco was vastly undercapitalized and as part of a survival mode decided the Sydney Steel Plant could easily feed the Trenton Works. This resulted in the closure of the Sydney Mines Plant in 1921.The Compressor Shop was shipped to Trenton and a few overhead cranes and roll motors went to Sydney. However, the rest of the plant was scraped. It was certainly an economic blow to the town of Sydney Mines but, fortunately, over time it recovered from the closure. Some of the steelworkers went to the Compressor Plant at Trenton while others procured work at the Sydney Works. A number boarded the “Harvest Trains” to Western Canada and never returned. The coal industry was still expanding and most of the former steelworkers became coal miners in time. The plant seems to be an almost forgotten part of the industrial history of Cape Breton. This is unfortunate, especially because of the important role it played in producing steel for munitions and ships, which immensely helped the Allied Powers to triumph over the German – Austria Hungary Axis in the first part of the Great War.

Baddeck Nova Scotia (July 11/09) Terry Kelly In My Fathers House
 
03:27
Baddeck (2001 population: 907, pronounced /bəˈdɛk/) is a Canadian village in Victoria County, Nova Scotia. It is the county's shire town and is situated on the northern shore of Bras d'Or Lake on Cape Breton Island. According to some historians the name Baddeck is derived from the Mi'kmaq term "Abadak" which has been translated as "place with an island near" (in reference to Kidston Island, immediately offshore). The creation of the Cabot Trail during the 1930s made Baddeck the focal point for vehicle touring on Cape Breton Island. The village experienced a boom in post-World War II tourism, particularly after the 1956 opening of the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site of Canada and the opening of the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 105) immediately north of the village during the early 1960s. Today, Baddeck functions as a service centre for the sparsely populated county and hosts a well-equipped volunteer fire department, a consolidated school serving grades Primary-12, as well as a public library, provincial government offices, a hospital and a nursing home. The village's economy is driven by tourism during the summer and fall months; it has been estimated by provincial tourism officials that the village experiences almost as many tourists as the provincial capital Halifax. Baddeck has managed to maintain public access to much of its attractive waterfront while preventing aesthetically unpleasing developments. It hosts a yacht club which is the focal point for cruising on Bras d'Or Lake, as well as a world-class golf course, a lake-front resort and numerous hotels/motels and restaurants and shopping establishments. Alexander Graham Bell's summer retreat In 1885, Alexander Graham Bell, his wife Mabel, and their two young daughters, arrived by boat from the Strait of Canso. They fell in love with Baddeck and built two homes on Beinn Bhreagh, as well as the original Bell Laboratory, predecessor to the famous Bell Laboratories many years later. Dr. Bell and his family helped begin a new era for the people of the village. Alec Bell, who was a Scot and could speak Gaelic, took Baddeck to heart and made their home a gathering place for the village. Alec and his wife Mabel promoted culture, sociability, science and industry among the villagers. In his laboratory on Beinn Bhreagh across the Bay from Baddeck, Alec Bell conducted experiments, built kits, airplanes, hydrofoil boats, and, during WW I, lifeboats for the Canadian navy. The Bells provided steady employment for many in the village; while Mabel Bell did much to foster home industries, among them the hooking of rugs for which the village of Chéticamp is today so famous. Baddeck became the site of the first controlled powered aircraft to fly in the British Empire, the Silver Dart which was first flown off the ice of Baddeck Bay on February 23, 1909. Another one of Dr. Bell's experimental craft, the HD-4 hydrofoil established the world watercraft speed record in 1917 after travelling at 71 MPH across Baddeck Bay; the record lasted for 20 years. Alexander Graham Bell spent the last thirty years of his life mostly in Beinn Bhreagh and he died there in 1922. His wife followed him a few months later and together they rest on the top of their beautiful mountain under a simple boulder of granite. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Bit Of Sydney And Sydney River Nova Scotia
 
04:25
A Bit Of Sydney And Sydney River Cape Breton Nova Scotia. Sydney (2001 population: 24,115) is a Canadian urban community in the province of Nova Scotia. It is situated on the east coast of Cape Breton Island and is administratively part of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Sydney was incorporated in 1904 and dissolved on August 1, 1995 when it was merged into the regional municipality. Sydney is the largest urban centre on Cape Breton Island. Together with Sydney Mines, North Sydney, New Waterford and Glace Bay it forms the Industrial Cape Breton region. History It was founded by Col. Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres in 1785, and named in honour of Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney (also the Home Secretary in the British cabinet at the time). Lord Sydney appointed Col. DesBarres governor of the new colony of Cape Breton Island. Col. DesBarres landed a group that consisted primarily of poor English citizens and disbanded soldiers. A group of Loyalists from the state of New York, fleeing the aftermath of the American Revolution, were added to the immigrants upon their arrival in the neighbouring colony of Nova Scotia. The site DesBarres chose for the new settlement was along the Southwest Arm of Sydney Harbour, a drowned valley of the Sydney River, which forms part of Spanish Bay. Between 1784-1820, Sydney was the capital of the British colony of Cape Breton Island. The colony was disbanded and merged with neighbouring Nova Scotia as part of the British government's desire to develop the abundant coal fields surrounding Sydney Harbour; the leases being held by the Duke of York. In 1826, the leases were transferred to the General Mining Association and industrial development around Sydney began to take shape. By the early twentieth century Sydney became home to one of the world's largest steel plants, fed by the numerous coal mines in the area under the ownership of the Dominion Coal Company. Sydney's economy was a significant part of Industrial Cape Breton with its steel plant and harbour and railway connections adjoining the coal mining towns of Glace Bay, New Waterford, Sydney Mines and Reserve Mines. The economic boom brought about by industrialization saw the community incorporate in 1903. By the late 1960s the coal and steel industries had fallen on hard times and were taken over by the federal and provincial governments and both industries were permanently closed by the end of 2001. Forced to diversify its economy, Sydney has examined a variety of economic development possibilities including tourism and culture, light manufacturing and information technology. Sydney Harbour played an important role during World War II after a Royal Canadian Navy base, HMCS Protector, was established to stage supply convoys bound for Europe. They tended to be slower convoys and had the prefix SC (for Slow Convoy). Convoy SC-7 typified the dangers inherent with the Nazi U-boats off the coast of Cape Breton and Newfoundland during the Battle of the Atlantic. Sydney's coal shipping and steel manufacturing were essential ingredients in the Allied victory, however federal Minister of Industry, C.D. Howe favoured Central Canada's steel industry given its proximity to a larger workforce and less exposure to coastal attack. The lack of significant war-time investment in Sydney's steel plant led to its decline after the war from which it was unable to recover. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Seaplane Replica To Take Eternal Flight North Sydney (NS) - The community of North Sydney honoured its rich military history on the occasion of the 65th year marking the end of World War II and the Battle of the Atlantic when a scale model of a PBY-5A Canso seaplane and six interpretative panels are unveiled in Munroe Park during a dedication event on May 2, 2010. Kelly Beach (now Munro Park) was established by the United States Navy during World War I for the protection of convoys that sailed out of Sydney Harbour. North Sydney's seaplane base was originally located at Indian Beach, east of this location; however, in 1918, the base was moved to Kelly Beach, a site it occupied for the remainder of the war. During this period, a number of records were established by aircraft flying from Kelly Beach. These include the first seaplane flight over the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the first non-stop flight from North Sydney to Halifax. In August, 1939, as war approached once again, No. 8 (GP) Squadron was transferred from RCAF Station Rockcliffe, Ottawa, to the reactivated RCAF Station at Kelly Beach. During the course of World War II, close to one dozen squadrons and detachments of the Royal Canadian Air Force flew out of Kelly Beach, North Sydney.

Louisbourg  Cape Breton Nova Scotia (July 7/09)
 
04:11
Louisbourg Cape Breton Nova Scotia (Music By Lennie Gallant Which Way Does The River Run) History The town's name was given by French military forces who founded the Fortress of Louisbourg and its fortified seaport on the southwest part of the harbour, in honour of Louis XV. The French fortress was demolished after its final capture in 1758 and the site was abandoned by British forces in 1768. Subsequent English settlers built a small fishing village across the harbour from the abandoned site of the fortress. The village grew slowly with additional Loyalists settlers in the 1780s. The harbour grew more accessible with the construction of the second Louisbourg Lighthouse in 1842 on the site of the original French lighthouse destroyed in 1758. A railway first reached Louisbourg in 1877, but it was poorly built and abandoned after a forest fire. However the arrival of Sydney and Louisburg Railway in 1894 brought heavy volumes of winter coal exports to Louisbourg Harbour's ice-free waters as a winter coal port. The harbour was used by the Canadian government ship Montmagny in 1912 to land bodies from the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Incorporated in 1901, the Town of Louisbourg was disincorporated when all municipal units in Cape Breton County were merged into a single tier regional municipality in 1995. Economy Louisbourg's economy is dominated by the seasonal tourism industry and seafood processing. The depletion of ground fish stocks has negatively affected local fish processing operations in recent decades. In the 1960s Parks Canada completed a partial reconstruction of the Fortress of Louisbourg. Today this National Historic Site of Canada is the town's dominant economic engine, employing many residents and attracting thousands of tourists every year. The fortress holds large scale Historical reenactments every few years to mark important historical events and attract visitors to the town. The most recent in July 2008, commemorated the 250th anniversary of the first British siege victory over French forces in July 1758.[1] The town's more recent history is preserved at the Sydney and Louisburg Railway Museum located in the restored railway station in the centre of town. Annually, the community hosts the Louisbourg Crab Fest.[3]. A large golf course and residential resort is under development near the community. Designed by Nick Faldo, the resort is expected to open in 2010[4]. Louisbourg is home to the Louisbourg Playhouse, a theatre company operating in an Elizabethan theatre that was used as a prop in the live action 1994 Disney motion picture Squanto: A Warrior's Tale.

Cape Breton Bagpipe Music - Nuallan - Celtic Colours at the East Coast Music Awards
 
04:48
ECMA 2016 Celtic Colours Stage Nuallan - Jigs & Reels Musicians (Left to Right): Mac Morin, Patrick Gillis, Kenneth MacKenzie, Keith MacDonald, Kevin Dugas The formation of Nuallan was facilitated by Colaisde na Gaidhlig // The Gaelic College in late 2012. The purpose of the group is to represent, promote and explore the Gaelic style of piping brought to Cape Breton Island and mainland Nova Scotia from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland some 200 years ago through performance, education and collaboration with other musicians, dancers and singers. The group is composed of three Cape Breton pipers: Keith MacDonald, Kevin Dugas, and Kenneth MacKenzie. Their live performance underlines the group’s focus on exploring the deep and intrinsic connections with the dance and song traditions of Gaelic Cape Breton. Piping in Cape Breton was nourished and maintained to recent years through the playing of legendary players such as the Curries of Frenchvale, the Beatons of Mabou Coal Mines and the MacDonnells of Deepdale, among many others. This rich style of playing had a strong focus on the rhythm and musicality of the music. Nuallan’s members are known individually for their rhythmic, musical playing and bringing them together to celebrate the importance of the connection between piping, song and dance was a natural fit. The Gaelic word "Nuallan" has two main meanings. It translates as the characteristic, vibrant droning sound of the Highland bagpipes. It can also describe the constant murmuring sound of the ocean. This provides this group with an additional link to its musical historical evolution since traveling across the Atlantic Ocean with the early Scottish settlers.

Sydney Steel Plant Nova Scotia (Music Lennie Gallant Man Of Steel)
 
04:59
History An integrated steel mill was established on the southeast side of Sydney Harbour in the Whitney Pier neighbourhood of Sydney, Nova Scotia in 1901 by American investors. This entity was named Dominion Iron and Steel Company Limited (DISCO) and was a subsidiary to the Dominion Coal Company Limited (DOMCO). DOMCO coal was used to create coke to fuel the blast furnaces for smelting iron ore which arrived from Bell Island in Newfoundland. In 1920, DISCO merged with the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Company (SCOTIA) to form British Empire Steel Corporation (BESCO). In 1930, BESCO reorganized as Dominion Steel and Coal Corporation (DOSCO). In 1957, DOSCO was purchased by A.V. Roe Canada, which was later purchased and made a subsidiary of Hawker Siddeley Canada in 1962. Hawker Siddeley sought to eliminate money losing operations and in 1965, DOSCO announced that its mines had only 15 years of production left and concluded that the cost of opening new underground mines in the Sydney Coal Field would be too expensive. The company made its intentions clear that it would be exiting the coal mining business within months. In response to a vast public outcry in industrial Cape Breton County, the Minority government of Prime Minister Lester Pearson announced J.R. Donald would head a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Cape Breton coal industry, with hearings held in 1965 and 1966. The Donald Commission recommended that a federal Crown corporation be established to acquire and manage DOSCO's coal operations, with the aim being to slowly wean the Sydney area economy off the coal industry. "Future planning should be based on the assumption that the Sydney mines will not operate beyond 1981." On July 7, 1967 the Cape Breton Development Corporation, or DEVCO, was established to operate the mines in the interim, while phasing them out throughout the 1970s and, at the same time, develop new economic opportunities for the surrounding communities. On December 1, 1967, the provincial government established Sydney Steel Corporation (SYSCO) under an act of the provincial legislature to operate DOSCO's steel mill for a period of 12 months until the steel mill could be resold to another private operator. On March 30, 1968 DEVCO expropriated DOSCO's coal mines and the S&L, settling for a payment of $12 million. Just as the federal government's plans to gradually shut down coal operations were derailed by rising world energy prices and changes in political priorities, the provincial government's 1 year temporary commitment turned into a 33 year commitment, adding over $1 billion to the cash-strapped province's debt. SYSCO became a political football and no provincial government dared to shut it down, opting instead to use heavily-subsidized federally produced DEVCO coal for coking fuel. Over time, the provincial government gave limited capital investments to SYSCO throughout the 1970s and early 1980s. During the mid-1980s the provincial government of John Buchanan decided to modernize the steel mill for sale to the private sector by changing the process from a fully integrated oxygen blast plant to an electric arc mini mill. The blast process fuelled by coke would be mothballed in favour of using electricity to smelt recycled metal brought in by rail. With no purchasers from the private sector and tumultuous steel markets during the 1990s, the provincial government began to seek ways to rid itself of SYSCO. Numerous proposals for sale to foreign and domestic companies came and went, raising and lowering the hopes of Sydney and its surrounding area each time announcements were made and then promises broken. Finally, the Progressive Conservative government of John Hamm opted to sever provincial funding for the company entirely upon being elected in 1999. In July 2001, it was announced that SYSCO's mini mill was being sold to an Indian company named Zoom Developers who planned to dismantle it and ship it overseas. Despite worker protests, SYSCO's steel production was shut down that year and the workers have been helping to dismantle the entire facility for site remediation. Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Send a private message. We may just come and do an explore and episode featuring your site ! ** BEST VIEWED using the YouTube app on a full size SmartTV ** SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines or mine sites can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 75+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely explore an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer. If you don't know what you're doing, STAY OUT STAY ALIVE is the best policy. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

We Were Miners
 
15:26
The rise and fall of the UK coal mining industry has had the nation gripped for decades. Once an industry that employed hundreds of thousands and produced up to 284 million tonnes a year, by the early 1990s the industry was in dire straits as the Thatcher government declared that coal mining in the UK had no future and an accelerated pit closure programme was implemented with a loss of 25,000 jobs. The dispute exposed deep divisions in British society and caused considerable bitterness and hatred for Tory government. "We were miners" captures the survival stories of mining families who become the victim of policies of Tory government.
