Spirit River Quiz IX

It has been a long time since Spirit River Quiz VIII!  Time to test your trivia skills with Quiz IX.  It’s fairly short but fairly tricky:

1. What was one early nickname for the Edmonton, Dunvegan and British Columbia Railway (ED & BC) applied by northern wise-crackers?

2.  The Ksituan River got its name from a version of a familiar Cree word.  What is the word and what does it mean?

3.  What early adventurer passed through Fort Dunvegan by dogsled as part of a 4000-mile journey undertaken on horseback, foot and dogsled?

4.  In 1928, a major figure in Canadian history used the Peace River route (including Fort Dunvegan) on his 5000-mile trip to the Pacific which remains the longest North American canoe journey made in one season.  Who was he?

Let your brain buzz away for a few days solving those questions, then check back here for answers.
