French, why?[edit]

BC is not part of Francophone Canada and French is only spoken by a small number of people in BC. It also has no official status. Should it be removed?-- (talk) 15:43, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Punjabi also appears. does not mention Punjabi. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:38, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Removed it, clearly just qb nationalist silliness that has no place in the article. -- (talk) 15:33, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

University Endowment Lands in the Regional District[edit]

Under the Cities section, the article states that "Also in the metropolitan area but not represented in the regional district are the University Endowment Lands." But the UEL is in fact contained in and represented by GVRD Electoral Area A (stated in both these articles), which is of course a part of Metro Vancouver/GVRD. So perhaps this sentence should be removed, and two sentences back the wording should be "with adjacent unincorporated areas (including the University Endowment Lands) represented in the regional district as the electoral area known as Greater Vancouver Electoral Area A"? If there are no complaints here I'll go ahead and make this change. Lambda(T) (talk) 20:30, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

removed lists[edit]

I have removed all the copy and pasting of lists...Will work on making it into real content with sources over the next few days. -- Moxy (talk) 21:22, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Move info to History of British Columbia[edit]

The article is huge we should move lots of the history section to History of British Columbia. Will take lots of time to source all this so would love some help with trimming the section before I start sourcing stuff. -- Moxy (talk) 18:18, 13 April 2014 (UTC)


This article currently uses a mixture of templated and handwritten citations. I'd like to propose standardizing to the {{cite}} family of templates. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Nikkimaria (talk) 22:23, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

As there were no objections, I have made this change. Nikkimaria (talk) 16:16, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
