The 24-year-old stayed for three years in The capital of the northwestern provinces of Canada, where temperatures reach 50 degrees below zero in the winter, where wolves and bears spend a good night and the tundra is inhabited by millions of mosquitoes in the summer. The settlement, which at that time had about 2,500 inhabitants, roughly a third of whom belonged to the indigenous population, became known for its gold deposits.

Gold mining was also the reason the British Prince made a detouring flight by royal plane to the cold north of Canada in August 1954, while his wife, the Queen, as President of Canada, was visiting the capital, Ottawa. .
