Description From Owner:
  • Laurier Pass - Named after Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Prime Minister of Canada, by Inspector J.D. Moodie of the NWMP.
  • Moodie discovered this pass through the Rockies in 1897 while leading a patrol of four constables on a notable trail-finding expedition from the Peace River country to the Yukon.
  • Immediately to the south of the pass is MOUNT LAURIER. A slightly higher mountain to the southwest is named after Lady Laurier.
  • Sikanni Chief River - Named for a Beaver Indian 'dreamer' or 'prophet,' Makenunatane, known to the white men as the 'Sikanni Chief.'
  • Trimble Lake - After Dr. James Trimble, for some years a surgeon in the Royal Navy before he took up practice in Victoria in 1858.
  • He became a mayor of Victoria and was Speaker of the provincial legislature from 1872 to 1878. He was a courtly Irish gentleman with a fine presence and a warm heart.
  • Local people know this as Deadmen's Lake since two prospectors shot each other to death here around 1915.
