  5. From the Wikipedia article:

    "Buntzen lake used to be named Trout Lake, and was also called Lake Beautiful[3], and was renamed to Buntzen Lake in 1905 at the opening of the tunnel to Coquitlam Lake.[4]

    In 1903 the lake was used to power Vancouver's first hydroelectric power station. "
