Wakwayowkastic River. Information.
Ed note: That's what most people call it, though you'll see also Wakwayokastic, but neither is the official name.
According to NRCan, it's the Wekweyaukastik River.

But, according to NRCan, it's Wakwayowkastic Lake.
Quote in full and source:
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds,
adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
