Before BC: Proto-British Columbia – In Proto-British Columbia government was in the form of a Company State run by the Hudson’s Bay Company. This pre-colonial government was remarkably multicultural. Its heartland was the lower Columbia River, and its capital was the original Vancouver. It was one of the foundations from which modern British Columbia emerged.
The new “British” Columbia – After the 1846 Border Treaty was implemented in 1849, many of the people from the original Columbia moved north to the new Columbia: British Columbia. In the north, political governance came from Victoria, Langley and New Westminster. Some gravitated to these centers, and many more settled in what is now Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, and Coquitlam. Others settled around Burrard Inlet and False Creek.
Vancouver’s past, Vancouver’s future – Those who follow politics in Vancouver will be interested in the earliest days of the city. Before the evolution of political parties in Vancouver, politicians organized themselves in loose political factions. These were related to earlier political factions that developed in Victoria.
