On the road between Prince Rupert and Prince George lies a city by the name of Smithers, which is home to about 5,400 people. Originally inhabited by the Wet'suwet'en people, Smithers was established in 1913 by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway for use as its headquarters. The city is named after Alfred Smithers, the railway's chairman. Because of this unique history, Smithers is quite different from most cities in British Columbia in terms of culture. For instance, there is a city ordinance stating that all buildings in the city must be constructed in the Alpine style to fit with the rest of the town's architecture.
Citizens of Smithers refer to themselves as "Smithereens." Some famous Smithereens include NHL stars Joe and Jimmy Watson, actress Gina Holden, "Spirit of the West" musician Tobin Frank and author Susan Juby. Smithers features relatively mild weather; the temperature usually doesn't exceed the 70s in summer and doesn't drop below 12 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, making the climate quite temperate compared to much of Canada. This temperate climate is likely why several movies and television shows were filmed in Smithers, including Disney's "Eight Below" and Comedy Central's "Alice, I Think."
