Fast Fact

While the United States was opened up by covered wagon, Canada, and B.C. in particular, was opened up by river. Big rivers like the Columbia and Fraser and small ones like the Kicking Horse and Nimpkish were the highways for First Nations people, European explorers and traders and later loggers and miners. Almost every river has a historic story to tell.
