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 Granby Island, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that stretches from Granby Island. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Granby Island) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Granby Island. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.7333, Longitude: -56.7333     [Map].

<3>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Granby Island were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
