Every river in Canada's northern watershed flows north to Hudson Bay, James Bay or the Arctic Ocean.

The Tennessee river ends up north from where it begins just outside Knoxville.

Speaking of flowing uphill, last summer I was canoeing on the Holston and there was a large water release on the French Broad so the current on the Holston was "uphill" for the last 1/4 mile until they joined to form the Tennessee.

The Wallkill River begins in New Jersey and flows north through several counties in New York.

I'm guessing there are others, but these are the ones I've seen that I can think of offhand.

Athabasca
St. John's
Genesee
Willamette
Niagara

The Columbia flows east to west, so I guess that means it is flowing sideways?
