     Well, I'm quite surprised.  Seems that all sorts of fruit are grown in BC 
by way of training on trellises.  There is a "BC Fruit Production Guide" 
available online in PDF format, but requires setting up an account to be able 
to download.  Other sites describe growing paw-paw, kiwi, and other fruits by 
this method in BC, including peaches.
