1933: A trapper near Fort St. John, BC, was overtaken by a storm while out
on the trail. He was forced to take shelter in an abandoned, roofless cabin.
Temperatures dipped to -51°C. His feet became so frozen, they swelled up and
turned black. On the 8th day and desperate, he killed his sled dogs but was
unable to eat their flesh. On the 9th day he had made up his mind to end his
life when help arrived.

1905: An ominous, overcast sky, freezing temperatures, howling 100 km/hr
winds, and 9-m waves battered Vancouver Island's west coast. The Pass of
Melfort was driven onto the rocks and then sank in 70 m of water. Her 36-man
crew perished, only 2 bodies ever found. The tragedy caused the Amphitrite
Point lighthouse to be built the next year. It lasted just 8 years, until a
storm swept it away.
