I found info that the Pitt River bridge monitors CH 74 - possibly they all do?

Pat's Boating in Canada: VHF Marine Channels

This link lists Ch 74 for Pacific Coast /Fraser river , Ch13 seems to be the US bridge channel.

Most bridges I've seen monitor CH 13.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

13 is a ship's bridge to ship's bridge channel.

My Radio Aids to Marine Navigation says 16, 11, 12 or 74.
