The confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers is a complicated place. Located just before the rivers meet is a place called the Island Cache, where a community of settlers took up residence in the1920s. The area was initially an island separated by a flood channel. The Cache was a very different place than the city (Prince George) on its border, but in 1970, it was incorporated, and a period of escalating political turmoil began. Integration was swift and decisive, and accomplished through by-laws, condemnation orders, and bulldozers; the event triggering it was a flood. Pushed to margins of society, the people of the Cache survived as best they could. They created a vibrant community, but because it was very different than that of those with power, 'progress' meant the end of the Cache.
