British Columbia Tourism Region : Northern BC

Description From Owner:
  • Mount Coccola - After the fiery Corsican priest Father Nicholas Coccola, OMI, who from 1880 until his retirement in 1934
  • laboured in the mission field in British Columbia, first in the Kamloops area, then in East Kootenay, and finally in the region of Fort St. James. He died in 1943.
  • Hogem Ranges - 'Hogem' (hog them) is a BC provincialism, going back to the gold rush days, used for a trader who exploited a monopoly by charging outrageous prices.
  • By extension a post where exorbitant prices were charged became known as a 'hogem' post.
  • Mitchell Range - After William Roland Mitchell, travelling companion of Captain Arthur Brisco when the latter participated in Palliser's explorations during 1858-9.
  • Mitchell was disappointed to find Palliser's program left little time for shooting expeditions.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
