British Columbia

British Columbia is the westernmost of Canada and is famed for its natural beauty. The capital of British
Columbia is Victoria. The largest city is Vancouver, the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada.


Cheakamus Lake in the Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia
We climbed up and down for a half day on the mountain route to Cheakamus Lake. The trail
rolls up and down, but it is relatively flat. The first time to hike to the lake was in the summer of 1974.
It was a very unforgettable memory for me, and I once again tried to walk on the same trail route,
37 years after. This photograph was taken in June 2011.

Vancouver is a coastal city of British Columbia and ranks the third largest in the country. It had a population of
about 580,000 and its Metropolitan Area exceed 2.1 million people based on the 2006 census. Because of its
location on the Pacific Rim and the western terminus of the transcontinental highway and rail routes of Canada,
Vancouver is one of the nation's largest industrial centres.

BC takes steps to reduce exposure to second-hand smoke.

British Columbia is taking steps to reduce the health effects of tobacco use through new regulations that
restrict the promotion and sale of tobacco products, as well as a ban on smoking in all indoor public spaces

Tobacco sales in public buildings, including: hospitals and health facilities, universities and colleges, athletic
and recreational facilities, and provincial government buildings. Display of tobacco products in all places
where tobacco is sold that are accessible to youth under 19; and Tobacco ads that hang from the ceiling,
countertop tobacco displays, self-serve tobacco displays and outdoor tobacco signs.
