It is now a thriving community with plenty of amenities and activities for residents and visitors alike. In 1889 the two distinctive twin peaks in the North Shore were dubbed "The Lions" by Judge Gray for their resemblance to lion statues. CN railway came to town in 1954 and highway 99 brought in permanent residences, before that the area was mostly summer cottages.
