This is Trial Island. Trial Island... hmmm, it sounds cool, don't it? Like maybe at one time there was some good old fashioned prosecution of uppity women; angry mobs throwing them down into the icy waves to be dismembered and devoured by slithering wolf eels.
Appealing as that may be, this is Canada, and so, it's required that the explanation of the name be dull. ;-)
And it is.
The island is just off shore and a couple of miles east of various ship building docks (Navy and industrial). It use to be that when the ships were sea worthy enough, they would do a trial run out from the docks to the island and back. That's what I've heard anyways.
