…já nessa estrada, na direção do leste, surge-nos a cidade de Vanderhoof, que nos despertou a atenção pelo letreiro de Boas Vindas, com as letras desenhadas por lindas flores, depois viemos a saber que o motor económico de Vanderhoof, são a indústria florestal, agricultura e indústrias relacionadas. A mineração está crescendo em importância, com uma série de minas sendo desenvolvidas na área!. (on this road, towards the east, we come to the city of Vanderhoof, which aroused our attention by the sign of Welcome, with the letters drawn by beautiful flowers, later we came to know that Vanderhoof economic drivers are the forest industry, agriculture, and related industries.
