As in the United States, settlement in Canada leaped from mid-continent to the Pacific Shore. The plains area between was left to be settled and developed at a later date. Geographically, this area is an extension of the Great Plains. Historically, it offers a parallel and a contrast in matters of land policy, railroad building, and Indian relations.
