First militia unit??
- which was formed on November 21, 1863 and was the first militia unit raised in British Columbia, predating Canada as a natio
That may be what the regimental history says, but there were teh Victoria Voltigeurs in the Colony of Vancouver Island and the Victoria Rifles; the former composed of French-Canadians and Metis, drssed habitant-style, the latter also known as the African Rifle Corps. I suppose on the mainland, i.e. in the Colony of British Columbia, the New Westminster Rifles were the first; but not in BC as a whole.Skookum1 (talk) 14:31, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
- Since Vancouver Island was not part of BC at the time I believe the statement is correct and is correctly sourced, although perhaps this could be explained in the text. - Ahunt (talk) 17:24, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
According to The Regiments and Corps of the Canadian Army (Vol. I of the Canadian Army List), the march of the regiment is "Warickshire Lads." When and by what authority did it change to "The Maple Leaf Forever"?Ab.chaplin (talk) 10:54, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
