The Great Canadian Trivia Contest
The question is posted every week and therefore should appear each week. If you have not received the question by Thursday then please e-mail me personally and I will get it out to you with lots of time to answer the question. Please try to find it from the regular sources first and only use this in the event you can't find it in the regular places. If everyone asks for it to be sent personally it will tie up a tremendous amount of my time.

April 29th's Question:
The Mackenzie River is the longest river in Canada and it is entirely within
Canada. Name the next longest river that is entirely within Canada. It must
not flow into or out of Canada or have one of its banks not in Canada.
Depending on one's interpretation of the question there are two possible
answers, both of which will be accepted. If one simply takes the section of
the St. Lawrence that is entirely within Canada it would still qualify as the
second longest entirely within Canada. If one excludes the St. Lawrence
because of the wording of the question and the short international section of
the river then the Nelson River becomes the second longest entirely within
