Ed notes:
1. Coastal Routes in the Sechelt area are posted above. This part describes Routes elsewhere in CCR’s Lower Straits region.
2. Sources disagree regarding what belongs to the Sunshine Coast; perhaps others want part of the action. Some sources distinguish between the Upper and Lower Sunshine Coasts, including the Powell River area and Lund in the former. I follow some sources and exclude everything west of, and including, Agamemnon Channel; the excluded part, which includes the Powell River area, lies in CCR’s Upper Straits region.
