So far the only Marine channel activity I have heard in Alberta yet was at Ghost Lake at busy times in the summer as well as at Waterton.

I believe some of the marine freqs are reused as LMR channels in non-coastal areas.
Indeed they are. There's very little need for marine operations in Alberta (I think some of the particularly large lakes have users who might use one or two frequencies), so marine channels are used to provide some breathing room in the VHF hi band. For example, Okotoks Fire's NXDN system is on 156.6, marine channel 12.
