Prior to the arrival of Moody's Royal Engineers, Columbia Detachment, the Colony's supreme authority was its Governor James Douglas, who was the ...

    I'm copy-pasting the first paragraph which I'll dissemble (ressemble?) in the next day or two, and then work my way down from there. This is just a note to myself so bear with me for changes to this section in the next few days. This paragraph I could spend a day on tweaking; you'll see what I mean; the later ones I haven't read yet. It's complicat...

    Please see RE BC & Pacific Northwest History Forum re: Talk:List of United States military history events#Border Commission troops in the Pacific Northwest. If you think maybe I should also move some or copy some of my other stuff from NW history and BC history pages and various Indigenous peoples project article/talk pages let me know; I never mea...

    I'm proposing that the United Colonies article be merged here. I can't really see the need for two, since the period of the united colonies simply describes one stage in the evolution. The material in that brief article can act as a background context to this one and avoid needless content forking. Fishhead6421:13, 20 December 2006 (UTC) 1. There's...

    BTW there's no article in English Wikipedia on the Queen Charlottes as a separate colony or territory, briefly-lived though that was; there's one on the Stikine Territory though (Stickeen properly, in its legal name); curiously enough I found it in a listing of "lieutenant-governors" in French Wikipedia (where I weighed in as on one of the original...

    Realized that that hasn't been written yet, although once-intended long ago, as a result of a tangent from a link-change in Duncan River re that river's namesake as a candidate for the Council from the Kootenay District. The other colonial orgs should have articles also, have to get to that; among so much else...Skookum1 (talk) 06:07, 6 April 2008 ...

    I made some small changes to the Seymour section; which appears to have been cribbed from a badly-written general history somewhere that gets both facts and geography wrong; the priority is the History of BC article for stuff like this but just serving notice this section is a "gloss" of the actual facts, and Seymour was shunted aside even before h...

    I changed the description of the Governor's route, which was via the Homathko Canyon and only incidentally via an extremity of the Coast Range, namely the bit through which teh Homathko flos; but the Homathko's length is mostly through the Coast Mountains as such, of which the Chilcotin Ranges are only a small part, and their bulk is southeast of a...

    This has an issue: 1. Douglas accepted these conditions, and a knighthood. British Columbia was given its own capital — New Westminster — in 1859, but James Douglas would govern both colonies from Victoria for the next six years. No, not the next six years, certainly...I'll check the date of Seymour's accession to the job, I think it was in '64 (fi...

    If this is supposed to be the official language, the Colony did not have one, other than in de facto terms; if it's supposed to be "languages spoken there", it's a long list and that doesn't mean just native languages and Chinook Jargon.Skookum1 (talk) 10:18, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

    The map displayed shows British Columbia as it is, not as the colony was. See the description in the first paragraph wherein it is stated that the colony was only about one-half the size of modern B.C. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 154.5.153.168 (talk) 18:23, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
