What is the longest community name in Canada, and how many characters is it?


Just remember I am looking for a community and not a township or municipality.



P.S. Wonder what the limit is for a cache name, this would make a fun place for a cache.

Ochiichagwebabigoining somewhere in Ontario the Cree and Ojibway have long names for some things


Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump I always thought this was a good names for a place,,


but I know what the other is, I guess they must have had arguments while drinking screech and could not decide on the name of the place

Very good Stagunner, it is in the Youngest Province in Confederation.


Now who can guess the name?




I am confused now... easily done lately but confused none-the-less... The youngest province in Confederation is NFLD.... but I don't see how that fits the question and the answers given. I think I am lost.... UGH!


Will watch to learn :rolleyes:

:D Ok I've been told to answer this by binrat :D


The answer is Cape St. George-Petit Jardin-Grand Jardin-De Grau-Marches Point-Loretto which are a bunch of small towns that joined together I'm guessing. I'd hate to be the guy who paints the signs :)


Here is a map of the location



and the next question is....


How many "Long Lakes" are in Canada and if you can get within 20 you win. This doesn't include the french ones

Here is the next question:


The RCMP finally captured/killed the Mad Trapper of Rat River with the help of a famous bush pilot that was already known for two other feats.


What were those feats?


1) helped bring down Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron, by leading him over enemy lines and to his death


2) "the race against death" where he delivered diphtheria vaccine
