There is some evidence for a Chinookan-Nuu-chah-nulth Lingua franca in the writings of John Jewitt and also in what is known as the Barclay Sound word-list, from the area of Ucluelet and Alberni (Port Alberni). Others believe that the Jargon was formed within the great cultural cauldron of the time of Contact, and cannot be discussed separately from that context, with an appreciation for the full range of the Jargon-speaking community and its history. * Tumbler Ridge (Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia) - ''Tumbler Ridge Observer'' * Ucluelet - ''The Westerly News'' * Valemount (Valemount, British Columbia) - ''Robson Valley Times'', ''The Valley Sentinel'' First works on indigenous people In 1898 Carr made the first of several sketching and painting trips to aboriginal villages, visiting Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island, home to the Nuu-chah-nulth people, then commonly known to English speaking people as 'Nootka'. While on holiday to Alaska with her sister Alice in 1907, Carr again came into contact with indigenous peoples in remote villages and determined to use her art to document the sculptural and artistic legacy of the aboriginal people she encountered there. Port Alberni also serves as a hub for those travelling to the West Coast of Vancouver Island, including Ucluelet, Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park. As commodities tend to be much pricier in these remote areas, campers and travellers often do their shopping in Port Alberni before continuing their journey. This has resulted in development along the Johnston Road (Highway 4) corridor, including several big box retailers, grocery stores and strip mall developments. From 2003 to 2008, several eco-tourism companies have set up shop in the Alberni Valley, taking advantage of the city's location on the fringe of wilderness yet proximate location to Vancouver and Victoria (Victoria, British Columbia). - CBXQ (CBCV-FM) 0 540 AM Ucluelet CBC Radio One public (public broadcasting) news talk (talk radio) - - CBPU 1260 AM Ucluelet CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Weatheradio Canada weather alerts (Weatheradio) park information - - CIMM-FM 00 99.5 FM Ucluelet McBride Communications community radio - - CIWC-FM (CKLG-FM) 0 102.7 FM Ucluelet Rogers Communications (dark) (dark (broadcasting)) - - VF2381 (CFMI-FM) 0 104.9 FM Ucluelet West Coast Community TV Association classic rock - - CJWC-FM (CJJR-FM) 0 107.3 FM Ucluelet West Coast Community TV Association country (country music) - left thumb 200px Tofino was a strong advocate of the Trans-Canada Highway (Image:Western end of BC Highway 4.jpg) system, and this sign was erected in the hope that Highway 4 would become part of the TCH. 6 km (4 mi) west of the Somass River crossing, Highway 4 reaches the shore of Sproat Lake, following the lake shore west for 24 km (15 mi).
