Description From Owner:
  • Holmes River - After A.W. Holmes, provincial forest ranger, who died in the 1920s.
  • McBride - Began as one of the stations of the newly constructed Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (now part of the CNR).
  • Named after Sir Richard McBride (1870-1917), who in 1903, at the age of thirty-three, became the youngest premier in the history of British Columbia.
  • Knighted in 1912, McBride resigned as premier in 1915 and became the province's agent-general in London, where he died two years later. 'Dicky' McBride was a courtly, warm, outgoing person full of energy and ambitions for his province.
  • Rider - This CNR station was named after Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925), a popular novelist who travelled along this line in 1916 when it was the old GTPR. Note also MOUNT RIDER and HAGGARD GLACIER in this area.
