This means that India and Pakistan can decide for themselves whether to join or stay isolated from each other. However, they cannot go to war because of this agreement.

The second section was completed in 1890 - from Portland to Vancouver - making Canada's western frontier fully navigable by ship. This allowed for trade with the eastern United States to be routed through Canada instead of going overland through Mexico as previously done. The third section was finished in 1897, connecting Vancouver to Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. This final link up with the Canadian Northern Railway completed Canada's national network of tracks.

1898: The British Parliament passes the British Columbia Act, which includes parts of the Northwest Territory acquired from America in 1846.
