Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Leechtown, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Area code (778) is an overlay for area code (250).
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Leechtown) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Leechtown. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from LeechtownOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Leechtown. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.4836, Longitude: -123.7167    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
