MEMBERS OF

LAND SURVEYORS
ASSOCIATION

DEPOSITED DOCUMENTS AND HISTORICAL
MATERIAL FOR RETRIEVAL AND EXAMINATION
ON CANADA'S ANNIVERSARY IN YEAR 2067.

IN LAND OF MAGNIFICIENT VISTAS
AND GREAT PROMISE WE CAUGHT A VISION
OF THE FUTURE AS WE SURVEYED THE
TOWNSITES, TOWNSHIPS, ROADS, RIGHTS
OF WAY AND ESTABLISHED THE LEGAL
BOUNDARIES AND BASTS FOR GREATER
DEVELOPMENTS IN THE FUTURE.

WE SALUTE OUR SUCCESSORS WHO
WITH IMPROVED INSTRUMENTS AND
TECHNIQUES WILL LEAD THE WAY TO
GREATER DEVELOPMENTS.

"THOU SHALT NOT REMOVE THY NEIGHBOUR'S
LAND-MARKS WHICH THEY OF OLD TIMES
HAVE SET IN THINE INHERITANCE."
