Info on the canal
Canals are man-made channels for water. Canals are used for carrying ships and boats and shipping, and conveying people. The canal solved transportation issues. Canals made life better then and now because people today and back then had trouble shipping or moving really heavy things to other places, so when the canals were made people were able to ship the heavy things to other places with no problems. The problems it caused were money. It cost 90 to 125 dollars to ship a ton of cargo.
