Description

Excerpt from Report of the Deputy Minister of Labour on Industrial Conditions in the Coal Fields of Nova Scotia There is of course an intimate relation between Canada and the United States with respect to the coal trade. The coal supplies of Canada being found only at points in the extreme east and west, respectively, the United States product finds a safe market in the middle provinces of Canada, while it is able to compete with the Nova Scotia product as the latter reaches the limit of its Canadian market. The Nova Scotia Operator finds some compensation in New England for the loss of his domestic market. The following shows where the coal of Nova Scotia was marketed during the year ending September 30, 1908: Tons. 1,950,631ir New Brunswick. 5103304 Quebec. United States Elsewhere. It will be seen, therefore, that Quebec or the competitive portion of the domestic market consumes about one-third of the Nova Scotia product, while the Nova Scotia coal exported to the United States is less than ten per cent of the product, and for the year named, was less than half a million tons.
