Happy British Columbia Day!
Today, we are celebrating the pioneers who built this great province! For the 4.4-million people who call this beautiful place home, it’s their “Best Place On Earth!” It is one of the most ethnically diverse provinces in the country – a kaleidoscope of cultures.
At 944,735 square kilometres, British Columbia is larger than France and Germany combined and it’s even 1.35 times bigger than the American state of Texas. Only 30 countries are bigger than British Columbia, and it also has one of the largest coastlines in the world stretching for more than 27,000 kilometres. British Columbia is also the most biologically and geographically endowed province: boasting everything from towering snowcapped mountains to rainforests to even Canada’s only semi-arid desert complete with cacti.
Happy B.C. Day!
