He enrolled in the Royal Military College of Canada in February of 1880 and graduated fourth in his class with the First Class Certificate in Engineering. An athlete in college and the military, he won many awards, including the first Admiralty Trophy presented by the American Canoe Association in 1884 and, in 1920, was runner-up in the Canadian Senior Golf Championship. He served over 40 years in the military, which is where his career as a canal engineer began. He was Assistant Engineer on the Cornwall Canal enlargement project at Stormont, (which is where all his children were born); and thereafter worked on projects related to the Welland Canals at Niagara, Ontario. His triumph was as Engineer-in-Charge of the construction of the fourth Welland Ship Canal, which was so large and successful, it eclipsed the previous three which are now abandoned. An engineering marvel, the Welland Canal bypasses Niagara Falls and cuts through the Peninsula from Port Weller (named in John's honor), to Port Colborne. Still in use today, it carries about 40 million tons of cargo per year between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, lifting ship nearly 600 feet in a series of seven locks between the two lakes. John L. Weller was named a Life Member of the Engineering Institute of Canada. He died at Hamilton, Ontario less than three months before the Welland Ship Canal was opened. He was survived by his wife and children. In 2007 his great-grandaughter, Madelein Peggy Muntz, published a book about him entitled 'John Laing Weller'.

  • Note: 15 September 1847; McKechnie's Woolen Factory, Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "THE COBOURG STAR.; COBOURG, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 15, 1847.; MCKECHNIE'S WOOLLEN FACTORY; Four years ago when this Factory was begun, no one imagined that it would form the nucleus of (what is destined to be) the most flourishing part of our Town. Yet so it was; and it proves to demonstration that manufactures, under a protective policy, are as likley to prove beneficial here, as in the neighbouring States - Lowell for example. It is to use a well known fact that this Factory gives empoyment to at least thirty-eight thousands pounds of other labour, two-thirds of which is agricultural, namely - 20,000 sheep, worth 10 shillings, 10,000 pounds. Six thousand acres of land, worth 3 pounds an acre, 18,000 pounds. The wages of operatives, agents, & c. &c., will make up at least another ten thousand pounds; and all this benefit is derived from an original capital of 12,000 pounds. The farmers must not imagine that a market for their wool is all the benefit they derive from this factory, - they must remember that almost all wages of the operatives go to them either directly or indirectly for food." from The Cobourg Star, Sep 14, 1847, copied from microfilm at Cobourg Public Library.4
