WHONNOCK  () , 47 km east of VANCOUVER in MAPLE RIDGE municipality, was a STO:LO village site for centuries. Robert Robertson, a HBC boatman at FORT LANGLEY, settled here in 1860 and many others arrived in the mid-1880s along with the CPR. Riverboats stopped here; AGRICULTURE, commercial FISHING and SAWMILLING have been important to the local economy. The name is a HALKOMELEM word meaning "where there are always humpback salmon."
