in Newfoundland (Dominion of Newfoundland), where it was home berthed. Local military authorities had insisted that the ship travel without lights to not make itself a target. In fact, if the ship had been lit up it is unlikely she would have been hit, as she would clearly have been a civilian vessel. This controversy, which raged in Canada in the weeks which followed her destruction, was further complicated by the presence of at least 57 military personnel from Britain (UK), Canada and the United States on board, thus actually legitimizing her as a military target.

The largely urban riding includes the towns of North Sydney (North Sydney, Nova Scotia), and Sydney Mines (Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia) and it extends along the coast northward until Point Aconi (Point Aconi, Nova Scotia). Stephenville Air Base and later Ernest Harmon AFB was quite an isolated posting during its early years as a United States Army Air Forces and later United States Air Force base. It was located in the protection of the Long Range Mountains and harbour of the St. Georges Bay area, it was virtually cut off from rest of the island, except for a few roads and boat and plane traffic. Newfoundland itself was, and still is, considered isolated but during the 1940s and 1950s, when roads were virtually non-existent and surface travel was limited to the slow narrow-gauge passenger trains of the Newfoundland Railway, which linked to small coastal steamships or ferries to the mainland at North Sydney, Nova Scotia, the sense of isolation could prove overwhelming. In addition, the airfield's location at the head of Bay St. George was one of the more geographically isolated parts of the island, being surrounded by the Long Range Mountains and the coastline of the island's west coast being dotted with tiny outports (Newfoundland outport). In addition to USAAF USAF aircraft, the only other option for travel was the railway and ferries coasters, or exploring the limited local road network which stretched along the coast and into the uninhabited interior of the island. * Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (Naval Air Station Halifax) * North Sydney, Nova Scotia (Naval Air Station Sydney) Beginning in May 1972, the ''John Hamilton Gray'' was used during the peak travel season on CN's Cabot Strait services from North Sydney (North Sydney, Nova Scotia) to Channel-Port aux Basques, Newfoundland and Labrador Channel-Port aux Basques

Located on the north side of Sydney Harbour, along the eastern coast of Cape Breton Island, North Sydney is an important port in Atlantic Canada as it is the western terminus of the Marine Atlantic ferry service. It acts as the marine link for the Trans-Canada Highway to the island of Newfoundland (Newfoundland (island)), which is why North Sydney's nickname is called The Gateway To Newfoundland.

Marine Atlantic ferries currently operate from North Sydney's terminal to the ports of Channel-Port aux Basques and Argentia. The Crown Corporation is one of the largest employers in the area.
