What is this bug?

Got away for the labour day weekend, and took the family to our favourite camping spot on Lesser Slave Lake, 130 miles North of Edmonton. This Lake has the best beaches within a thousand miles. I won't bore anyone with pictures of our camping, but we found this on the picnic table.

What the heck is it?

I emailed an entymologist, Answer: a Pseudoscorpion. A type of spider I didn't know even existed until this trip.

Nice to know what it is. I am sure there must be some of them around our cabin (Fawcett Lake). Not all that far from Slave as the crow flies. However in the 30 odd years up there I have never seen anything like it.
