Steve Yzerman
I’ve seen a few wild grizzly bears, mostly in Alaska and British Columbia, and always from a distance. But each grizzly I’ve caught sight of was as fearsome and sublime as the last. You never get used to their raw power and massive bodies, or the mysterious intelligence in their dark, close-set eyes.
Lydia Millet
My youngest brother and I went on a ten-day canoe trip in Bowron Provincial Park in British Columbia years ago. Believe it or not, we took only granola, thinking we’d be eating a lot of lake trout. Well, we neglected to bring along a net, and our fishing line was only 8-lb. test.
Will Hobbs

I’m a novelist from the Haisla and Heiltsuk First Nations of British Columbia, both small coastal reserves hugging the rugged shores of the west coast.

Marriage commissioners who choose not to marry homosexuals are being fired. A Knights of Columbus chapter in British Columbia is in court because it chooses not allow a lesbian group to use its facility for marriage ceremonies. The list goes on.
Stockwell Day
During school, I’d advertise cars in the University of British Columbia newspaper.
Jim Pattison
The coast of British Columbia was one of the three chief centers of aboriginal America.
Ellsworth Huntington
In 1986, I was asked by the then-Dean of Science at the University of British Columbia, Dr. R.C. Miller, Jr., to establish a new interdisciplinary institute, the Biotechnology Laboratory.

Michael Smith
There is much to be said against the climate on the coast of British Columbia and Alaska; yet, I believe that the scenery of one good day will compensate the tourists who will go there in increasing numbers.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
To put it in context, the federal government was, at the beginning [of the Vancouver meeting], talking about a $15-per-tonne floor for carbon emissions. We’re at $30 a tonne, so we’re already double that. But our economy is growing at a faster rate – three per cent of GDP is our projected growth in British Columbia.
Christy Clark

For the first five years of my life, I grew up in a log cabin in coastal British Columbia in a very small town, like 300 people, mostly hippies. No running water, no electricity. When I was 12, I changed my name from Dharma to Stewart. At that age, you just want to be normal.
Stewart Butterfield
Mountain Pine bark beetles need -37В°C (-35В°F) for three days to freeze to death. Unfortunately, with global warming, that no longer happens in British Columbia [Canada]. This means the population of the beetles have exploded. They have destroyed more forests than all the environmentalists put together have saved.
Mark Leiren-Young
I grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Ryan Reynolds

The art of British Columbia’s native Indians played a big role in inspiring my creativity… the simplicity of the images, the graciousness of the lines and curves, and the emotional impact of the bright simple primary colours.
Joe Average
Our Government is pleased to partner with the Kelowna Visual and Performing Arts Centre Society, located in the heart of British Columbia’s vibrant Central Okanagan region. Support for the performing arts is essential for the professional growth and development of our Canadian artists.
Shelly Glover
You can’t say British Columbia’s carbon tax is exactly the same as increasing hydroelectricity rates in another province. They’re very different mechanisms, but we shouldn’t deny that both of them can have an impact, and that’s why we’re talking about this broadly.
Christy Clark
