Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is Whitney Pier.
Whitney Pier is a Canadian urban neighbourhood in Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Regional Municipality.
Prior to municipal amalgamation in 1995 which saw the formation of CBRM, Whitney Pier is a neighbourhood on the northern boundary of the City of Sydney. It is a triangle-shaped area north of the Muggah Creek estuary running along the eastern shore of Sydney Harbour.
Whitney Pier derives its name from Henry Melville Whitney, an American industrialist who established the Dominion Coal Company (DOMCO) in 1893 and its subsidiary the Dominion Iron & Steel Company Ltd. (DISCO) in 1901.
