Please check:
CA +5946-12014 America/Dawson_Creek Mountain Standard Time - Dawson Creek & 
Fort Saint John, British Columbia
The +5946 looks more like +5546 using popular map services.

Dawson Creek
Canada, British Columbia
populated place
population 10,802
N 55d 45m 59s
W 120d 14m 10s

Fort St. John
Canada, British Columbia
populated place
population 17,402
N 56d 14m 59s
W 120d 51m 10s

Ermm..... doesn't that make America/Dawson_Creek an "illegal" zone name?
Fort Saint John is more populated!
Note the coordinates.
