Longest Wharf?[edit]

Apparently citation is needed on the fact that Salmon Arm has the longest wooden wharf in North America, but all I could find are a few pages that say that it is the longest wharf of any kind in North America.

These are the pages I found, but I'm far too lazy to actually edit the page:

Well, given that those are all local tourism sites, and their citations would be to each other (whichever was the primary) they're not really "third party". I'm not sure who would rank wharf lengths, i.e. where we'd find lengths of other wharves, or how a wharf is defined (and is a wharf different than a pier, for example)? All those sites are promotional in nature and not "authoritative".....it's easy to boast, and easy to repeat a boast; proving it is something else entirely.Skookum1 (talk) 12:40, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Salmon Arm/Trudeau Salute[edit]

should it be mentioned that this the site where Trudeau was caught giving the middle finger to protesters. It's mentioned in his article there is even a link to Salmon Arm from his article because of that and 'giving the Salmon Arm Salute' has also entered the popular lexicon in Canada as an euphemism for giving the finger.
