Cr?ation de la Province de Columbie-Britannique

The province of British Columbia was created on July 20, 1871. Formerly a crown colony established by the union in 1866 of Vancouver Island with the mainland colony of British Columbia, the addition of the Pacific coast province made Canada truly a nation "from sea to sea". With provincial status came success for the movement toward self-government. The first Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia was Joseph W. Trutch and the first premier was John Foster McCreight.

La lutte pour l'autonomie ?taite gagn?e. Joseph W. Trutch et John Foster McCreght occup?rent, les premiers, les postes de lieutenant-gouverneur et de premier ministre de la Colombie-Britannique.
