TMC, the canyon isn't really that tight - it looked fairly wide by BC standards but in NS, it is considered quite a marvel. The lady at the visitor centre down in Economy told me that she had hiked up the canyon through the river in hip waders and that it was quite treacherous due to the rocks. Apparently the big falls partially collapsed after a big storm with lots of run-off in 1997 and then a further storm in 1999 re-arranged the rocks. I wouldn't want to be in the canyon while that is going on .
