By the way, peaks with the word ‘Mount’ as the first word of the name, are named after a person – in this case the mountain was named in 1914 by the Alpine Club of Canada after a long-time member of the ACC, according to GeoBC, which says “ In his capacity as Minister of Public Works, Colonel Foster had been instrumental in securing financing for the 1914 ACC expedition to the recently established Strathcona Park.”
