Lake Superior is the largest, coldest and deepestjust over 400 m (1,312 ft). Its also the farthest north and the most pristine of the lakes. Few people settled here because of the cold climate, and today the Canadian side is predominantly wilderness. More than 25% of Canada`s population lives around Lake Ontario which is bordered by the province of Ontario and New York State. Lake Erie is the smallest in volume.It is hydrologically supplied by the three upper Great LakesSuperior, Michigan, and Huronas well as Lake St. Clair River and drains into the Niagara River and the Welland Canal. The Point Pelee peninsula on Eries northern shore is the most southerly mainland point in Canada. Interestingly enough, despite it being in the middle of the Great Lakes spatially, Lake Huron was the first explored by the Europeans.
The French explorers came up through the Ottawa/French river waterways to Lake Huron before Lake Ontario was first found. DON'T HESITATE TO ASK QUESTIONS AND PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER LISTINGS! FOR CUSTOMERS IN UNITED STATES. EACH SALE COMES WITH UNCONDITIONAL 100% GUARANTEE OF THE QUALITY AND.
