Once the fourth-busies t seaport in Canada, the little town was also known as "Canada's Gateway tothe World" when an underwater telegraph cable between North America and Eu rope was successfully laid - the end of the cable was in North Sydney. To many, the town is the "Gateway to Newfoundland"; a ferry has run between North Sydney and Newfoundland for over a century.
