GUEST,Larry Saidman Origins: The Hope Princeton Highway (14) Origins: The Hope Princeton Highway 13 May 10


In the early 1970's I was involved in folk Edmonton, Alberta, and spearheaded the Edmonton Folk Club. One project I directed was a concert at Edmonton's Centennial Library called "The History of Western Canada through Folk Music", where I found certain songs and assign them to certain local performers to sing. One song was about the fatal Avalanche outside of Hope in 1965. I remember finding it in a book, but I can't remember what book. I've recently moved to Princeton and now I'm trying to trace the song, but I can't find hide nor hair of it in any google search. The chorus goes:

"Through sunshine and snow, or maybe just rain
The Hope-Princeton Highway will n'ere be the same"

Yes I know, it's not exactly inspired poetry.

Does anybody have the words and/or the book where I may have found it? Thanks.
