    In , Grand Trunk Railway then-vice-president Charles Melville Hays sparked the so-called “hotel wars” by expanding the company’s railway lines and building grand hotels. Like Van Horne, Hays was an ambitious visionary and his first project was the Château Laurier in Ottawa. The French Renaissance-style grand chateau is built of. It was the domain of the Grand Trunk, Canada’s original railway company with transcontinental ambitions and the precursor to the Canadian National Railway. Though perhaps less famous than its rival, the Canadian Pacific, the Grand Trunk had tracks and trains across Quebec, and provided employment for generations of workers in The Point.
