Politics in the Intro[edit]

Kinda curious why there's mention of court cases and the current premier, etc., etc. in the introduction. It's an overload of information that isn't really friendly to the reader.

It could be better put somewhere else. Maybe instead, just list some stuff that BC is generally known for to outsiders, and then the nitty gritty details that only residents of BC are really familiar with can be included in other sections, like 'current events', 'controversy' or 'politics' or whatever.

I recommend looking at the intro to the article on Montana, which describes it pretty well, with little bits of information that lead into the nitty gritty, such as general industry and economy information, as well as geography. Impfireball (talk) 11:03, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

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)

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)
