Solution to Puzzle 16: Trip to Canada

Here is the solution to the "Trip to Canada" puzzle:

The Uncle traveled to one location in each province and territory in Canada in the following order:

1.) Alert, Nunavut
2.) Yellowknife, Northwest Territory
3.) Whitehorse, Yukon
4.) Whistler, British Columbia
5.) Red Deer, Alberta
6.) Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
7.) Winnipeg, Manitoba
8.) Newmarket, Ontario
9.) Trois-Rivieres, Quebec
10.) Eel River Crossing, New Brunswick
11.) Cow Bay, Nova Scotia
12.) Cornwall, Prince Edward Island
13.) Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador

I unfortunately did not realize that there is also a Cornwall, Ontario, until after I published this puzzle, but I hope the rest of the locations were unique enough for the puzzle to still have been solvable (plus, Cornwall, PE is the only one which would make sense given the order of the Uncle's travels).
