Re: [Serious] The TCH is not contiguous currently.

The TCH is not a purposely built dedicated road spanning the nation; it's a combination of existing roads joined with new roads built to create the contiguous link.

In many areas, such as North of the Great Lakes more than one road is assigned the TCH designation to ensure there's always at least two navigable link between various points. If one link goes down, the other link maintains the traffic flow across the nation.

And while the 11 is a nice, straight and flat road, it's also an extremely BOOOOOOOORING road to travel on! It's like driving across the Prairies!

It like this in all areas west of the Maritimes, at least two highways... except between Nipigon and Thunder Bay.

And that stretch has the huge Terry Fox memorial just North of Thunder Bay.
