Responding to a request for comment in the pub.

Good start. One question is whether you can get out onto the Great Lakes from the Buffalo end of the canal. I find myself wondering if the history section should be shortened.

There are other canal itineraries, at least Rideau Canal and Along the Grand Canal. Do they have ideas you could use? Pashley 12:37, 26 July 2012 (EDT)

The geography is a little confusing without a map, which I hope to include at some point. The Get in/By boat section says "The canal starts just north of Buffalo between Tonawanda and North Tonawanda, where the canalized Tonawanda Creek flows into the Niagara River. It's only a mile or two downstream (north) from Lake Erie, so you have easy access from any of the upper Great Lakes..." Is that not sufficiently clear about access to the Great Lakes?
