La Prairie and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec (2010)
La Prairie, on the banks of the Saint Lawrence, and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu on Montreal's South Shore, are home to the CHAMPLAIN AND SAINT LAWRENCE RAILROAD, the first real railway built in Canada, some 175 years ago. Funded by John Molson, Montreal merchants and others, the line was officially inaugurated on 21 July 1836.
