My parents grew up on farms outside a then-small (now medium) sized town in Manitoba named Stonewall. For a period in the early 1900s, a boy named Charles Goodeve lived in Stonewall. He lived there for about 10 years, before his family moved to Winnipeg. There is an article in the Stonewall Argus (the Gordon Trick mentioned is my father) about his life, including his work during World War II in the British Navy. Among other things, he figured out how to protect ships from underwater mines through a demagnetization process.
