Chemainus: The waters around Chemainus are called the “Salish Sea”. In March 2008, Chemainus First Nation representative George Harris proposed renaming the nearby Strait of Georgia as the Salish Sea, an idea that reportedly met with approval by B.C.’s Aboriginal Relations Minister Mike de Jong, who pledged to put it before the B.C. cabinet for discussion. Renaming would require a formal application to the Geographical Names Board of Canada.
The Salish Sea name has been used by the Coast Salish Gathering, a trans-boundary organization of Coast Salish leaders, since 2007. The Stz’uminus First Nation is located on Stuart Channel, which is within the Salish Sea ecosystem. The Salish Sea name was originally proposed by Bert Webber from Bellingham, Washington in 1988 for the Strait of Georgia, Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca and all adjoining waters.
Diving the “Salish Sea” for instance via the Boeing and other sites is possible and a packaged stay via the BEST WESTERN PLUS in Chemainus along with other getaway packages.
