History / Biographical
CFBV (C F Bulkley Valley) began broadcasting in 1963 under the ownership of CFBV Ltd. The radio station was located on the corner of Queen Street and Highway 16 in Smithers, B.C., moving to the former School Board offices on Queen Street several years later. The radio’s main mission since it first broadcasted has been to relay local news, weather, sports, entertainment, and information of community interest. The station opened a rebroadcaster, CFLD, in the Tweedsmuir Hotel in Burns Lake in November 1965, and added another rebroadcaster, CKBV, in Hazelton, and CHLD in Granisle, in 1974.

History / Biographical
Cornelius Bot was born October 29, 1910 in Blokker, Holland. In 1958 he moved with his wife Alida and their eight children (Gerbrandt, Mary, Casey, Nick, Anne, John, Trudy, and Jos) to Smithers, B.C., fulfilling his dream of living out west. After several years of working various jobs, he established a chicken farm in the early 1960s, producing and selling eggs throughout the valley. Bot was also a horse lover and a lifetime member of the Northern Saddle Club. He was known for many years for being one of the only people in Smithers with a horse and buggy; his horse, Hispo, frequently gave winter sleigh rides, delivered presents at Christmas, and pulled Bot’s custom-built, hand-painted cart in parades. (Interior News, June 11 1986). Bot won many ribbons and trophies for Western riding at the Fall Fair, and helped construct stables, fences, barrels, and various buildings for the Fairgrounds. After his retirement, he dedicated his time to making, collecting, and restoring horse paraphernalia, buggies, and sleighs. His farm was sold in 1994 and the land transformed into the Park Place subdivision. Bot died on December 2, 1998 at age 88. In 1999 his family erected a cairn in his memory at Park Place.

History / Biographical
Alan Pickard was born and raised in New Zealand. He met his wife, Anne, while visiting Calgary en route to Europe. They moved to the Bulkley Valley in 1970, working here for a few months before moving to Kitimat for four years. Afterwards, they returned to Smithers and built a log cabin on Telkwa High Road. The two were frequent international travelers, dividing their time between the Bulkley Valley and locations such as Alaska, Saudi Arabia and New Zealand. Pickard began researching early settler history of the Bulkley Valley in 1998. He initially focused on the Telkwa High Road and the two telegraph lines that ran along it: the Collins Overland telegraph (1866) and the Yukon telegraph (1900). His interests then broadened to include early trails, roads and bridges, early (pre-1914) settlers, place names, and maps. Pickard’s use of original sources (books, archival records, etc.) in his research led to him collecting documents such as early mining claims, Hudson’s Bay Company and North West Company trading posts, and land surveys in the Bulkley Valley. Pickard’s research is a continuation of the work of other researchers, including local historian Lynn Shervill, author of “Smithers: From Swamp to Village,” and John Tupper Saywell. He also assisted Kate Smallwood with her book “Kate’s Selection,” published in 2005. In addition to his historical research, Pickard served as the Chairman of the Smithers Library Board, was a member of the Bulkley Valley Writers’ Group, contributed articles to the Interior News, staked mining claims, worked as an electrician, and wrote poetry (his volume being the first book printed by Bulkley Valley Printers). In 2005, Alan and Anne Pickard returned to New Zealand, where they currently reside.
