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.
