British Columbia - Canada

British Columbia is the westernmost of Canada's provinces and is famed for its natural beauty. The capital of British Columbia is Victoria, the 15th largest metropolitan region in Canada.

"The British Columbia Parliament Buildings are located in Victoria, British Columbia and serve as the seat of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.
The Neo-Baroque buildings face north on Belleville street facing the Inner Harbour and diagonally across from The Empress Hotel. A large statue of Queen Victoria stands on the front lawn as well a statue of a soldier to commemorate the province's World War I, World War II and Korean War dead. Atop the central dome is a gold-covered statue of Captain George Vancouver." - in:

"Long Beach, the most easily accessed vacationing destination beach of the Pacific Rim National Park is the sandy coastlines of Long Beach located between the villages of Tofino, BC and Ucluelet, BC. In the late spring, summer and early fall the beach area is a popular surfing, sun tanning, photography, relaxing, rainforest hiking and beach walk destination. In the mild winter months the beach is a scenic wonderland of storms and crashing waves. Long Beach stretches for over 16 kilometres and is anchored by Schooner Cove on the north end of Long Beach and Florencia Bay on the south end." - in:
