New Westminster is a city in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia, a member municipality of Metro Vancouver. It was founded by Major-General Richard Moody as the capital of the new-born Colony of British Columbia in 1858, continued in that role until the Mainland and Island Colonies were merged in 1866, was the Mainland's largest city from that year until it was passed in population by Vancouver during the first decade of the 20th Century, it is located on the banks of the Fraser River as it turns southwest towards its estuary, on the southwest side of the Burrard Peninsula and at the centre of the Greater Vancouver region. Before the settlers arrived from various parts of the world, the area now known as New Westminster was inhabited by Qayqayt First Nation; the discovery of gold in B. C. and the arrival of gold seekers from the south prompted fear amongst the settlers that Americans may invade to take over this land. Richard Clement Moody arrived in British Columbia in December 1858, at the head of the Royal Engineers, Columbia Detachment, having been hand picked to “found a second England on the shores of the Pacific”.
Moody ‘wanted to build a city of beauty in the wilderness’ and planned his city as an iconic visual metaphor for British dominance, ‘styled and located with the objective of reinforcing the authority of the Crown and of the robe’. Subsequent to the enactment of the Pre-emption Act of 1860, Moody settled the Lower Mainland and selected the site and founded the new capital, New Westminster. Moody and the Royal Engineers were trained in settlement and selected the site because of its defensibility: it was farther from the American border than the site of the colony's proclamation, Fort Langley, possessed "great facilities for communication by water, as well as by future great trunk railways into the interior", possessed an excellent port. Moody was struck by the majestic beauty of the site, writing in his letter to Blackwood, "The entrance to the Frazer is striking--Extending miles to the right & left are low marsh lands & yet fr the Background of Superb Mountains-- Swiss in outline, dark in woods, grandly towering into the clouds there is a sublimity that impresses you.
Everything is large and magnificent, worthy of the entrance to the Queen of England’s dominions on the Pacific mainland. My imagination converted the silent marshes into Cuyp-like pictures of horses and cattle lazily fattening in rich meadows in a glowing sunset; the water of the deep clear Frazer was of a glassy stillness, not a ripple before us, except when a fish rose to the surface or broods of wild ducks fluttered away". It was suggested by Moody and the Royal Engineers, Columbia Detachment that the site be proclaimed "Queensborough". Governor James Douglas proclaimed the new capital with this name on February 14, 1859; the name "Queensborough", did not appeal to London and it was Queen Victoria who named the city after Westminster, that part of the British capital of London where the Parliament Buildings were, are to this day, situated. From this naming by the Queen, the City gained its official nickname, "The Royal City". A year New Westminster became the first City in British Columbia to be incorporated and have an elected municipal government.
It became a major outfitting point for prospectors coming to the Fraser Gold Rush, as all travel to the goldfield ports of Yale and Port Douglas was by steamboat or canoe up the Fraser River. However, Colonial Office Secretary Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton'forgot the practicalities of paying for clearing and developing the site and the town’ and the efforts of Moody's Engineers were continuously hampered by insufficient funds, together with the continuous opposition of Douglas,'made it impossible for design to be fulfilled’. Governor Douglas had little affection for the city. In contrast to Victoria, where settlers from England had established a strong British presence, New Westminster's early citizens were Canadians and Maritimers, who brought a more business-oriented approach to commerce and dismissed the pretensions of the older community. Despite being granted a municipal council, the mainlanders in New Westminster pressed for a legislative assembly to be created for British Columbia, were infuriated when Governor Douglas granted free port status to Victoria, which stifled the economic growth of the Fraser River city.
Moreover, to pay for the expense of building roads into the Interior of the colony, Douglas imposed duties on imports into New Westminster. In 1866, the colony of British Columbia and the colony of Vancouver Island were united as "British Columbia". However, the capital of the Colony of Vancouver Island, located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, was made the capital of the newly amalgamated Colony of British Columbia, following a vote in the House of Assembly. On the day of the vote one member of the assembly, William Cox, shuffled the pages of the speech that William Franklyn from Nanaimo intended to give, so that Franklyn lost his place and read the first paragraph three times. Cox popped the lenses of Franklyn's glasses from their frames so that the Nanaimo representative could see nothing at all of his speech. After a recess to settle the resulting uproar and allow the member from Nanaimo a chance to sort out his speaking notes and his spectacles, on the members' return to the House of Assembly, the Sp
Boston Pizza is a Canadian-based restaurant chain that owns and franchises locations in Canada, the United States and Mexico. Boston Pizza began in Edmonton, Alberta, on August 12, 1964, when a Greek immigrant, Gus Agioritis, opened Boston Pizza and Spaghetti House. By 1970, Boston Pizza had 17 locations in Western Canada. One of the first franchisees was a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer. In 1968, he noticed the growing popularity of Boston Pizza and purchased the rights to open a restaurant in Penticton, British Columbia. While in Penticton, he met a chartered accountant, he acted as Treliving's business consultant for four years, and, in 1973, became Treliving's business partner. Over 10 years, they opened 16 restaurants in British Columbia. In 1983, Treliving and Melville acquired the Boston Pizza chain from Ron Coyle, who had acquired the company from Agioritis in 1978; the two divested 15 of their restaurants to other franchisees, converted one restaurant to a corporate training restaurant and set about establishing systems and operating standards to standardize company operations.
In the early 1980s, Boston Pizza expanded into Eastern Canada but by late 1985 most, if not all restaurants in Ontario were closed. In 1986, Boston Pizza became the official pizza supplier for Expo 86 in Vancouver; this major success for the company led to expansion in Eastern Canada. In the next two years, it led to another 17 franchises. By 1995, the chain had grown to 95 restaurants in Western Canada with sales in excess of $110 million. Over the many years the restaurants had become a success, more sports bars had been established as an integral part of the business. In 1997, Mark Pacinda was hired to bring the chain to more eastern areas of Canada. Once an Eastern Office was opened in Mississauga, another restaurant was opened in Ottawa in September 1998; the company opened a regional office in Laval, Quebec, in April 2004. As of December 2012, there are 348 Boston Pizza restaurants in Canada, over 40 in the U. S. and Mexico. Boston's was the U. S. and Mexican version of the Boston Pizza franchise.
In 1998, a U. S. headquarters was set up in Texas. The Boston Pizza name was changed to Boston's The Gourmet Pizza and Sports Bar. Boston's had over 30 stores in the U. S. and four in Mexico. As part of an advertising campaign created by ZIP communication, during the first round of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs, when the Boston Bruins played the Montreal Canadiens, the company temporarily rebranded its Montreal locations as "Montreal Pizza". In the final round of the playoffs, when the Bruins played the Vancouver Canucks, the company temporarily rebranded its British Columbia locations as "Vancouver Pizza". In 2002, Boston Pizza commenced a lawsuit against Boston Market in the Federal Court of Canada over the trademark use of the word "Boston" in Canada. In its defence, Boston Market alleged that Boston Pizza's trademarks were invalid because they described a style of pizza from a specific area; the dispute continued after Boston Market ceased operations in Canada in 2004. The parties settled the dispute in 2008 under an agreement that Boston Market would not use the words "Boston" or "Boston Market" in Canada for five years for restaurants or any food or drink products.
Boston Market agreed that it would not challenge Boston Pizza's use in Canada of any trademark that uses the words "Boston" or "Boston Pizza". List of Canadian restaurant chains List of Canadian pizza chains Pizza cake, a Boston Pizza product which went viral Official website

CHC provides helicopter services in Australia for the Fire and Emergency Services Authority of Western Australia, Victoria Police and the Ambulance Service of New South Wales.
Commercial helicopter flying began in British Columbia in the summer of 1947. Three ex-RCAF officers, pilots Carl Agar and Barney Bent, engineer Alf Stringer, were operating a fixed-wing charter company, Okanagan Air Services Ltd. from Penticton. In July 1947 they raised enough money to purchase a Bell 47-B3 and pay for their flying and maintenance training. Okanagan Air Services moved to Vancouver in 1949, renamed Okanagan Helicopters Ltd. By 1954, it had become the largest commercial helicopter operator in the world. In 1987, Newfoundland businessman Craig Dobbin headed a group of investors organized under the name Canadian Holding Company and using the initialism CHC. CHC purchased Okanagan Helicopters, Viking Helicopters, Toronto Helicopters and merged their assets with Dobbin's own company, Sealand Helicopters, to form a company named Canadian Helicopters; the parent company was renamed CHC Helicopter Corporation. CHC acquired British International Helicopters in 1994. In 2004, CHC purchased Schreiner Aviation Group who provided offshore helicopter services in the Dutch sector of the North Sea and to the Nigerian offshore industry.
In 2000, CHC entered into an agreement with Fonds de Solidarité FTQ and the management of its two Canadian divisions, Canadian Helicopters Eastern and Canadian Helicopters Western, for the sale of an interest in CHC's Canadian assets in a management buyout to form Canadian Helicopters. As a result, senior management and FSTQ acquired 10% and 45% equity interests in Canadian Helicopters while CHC retained a 45% equity interest. CHC restructuring in 2004 saw the creation of a new corporate headquarters in Richmond, British Columbia and the creation of three main operating segments: CHC Global Operations, based in Richmond, B.

Burnaby is a city in British Columbia, located to the east of Vancouver. It is the third-largest city in British Columbia by population, surpassed only by nearby Surrey and Vancouver. Burnaby was incorporated in 1892 and achieved City status in 1992, one hundred years after incorporation, it is the seat of Metro Vancouver's regional government. At incorporation, the municipality's citizens unanimously chose to name it after the legislator, speaker and explorer Robert Burnaby, private secretary to Colonel Richard Moody, the first land commissioner for the Colony of British Columbia, in the mid-19th century. In 1859 Burnaby had surveyed the freshwater lake near. Moody chose to name it Burnaby Lake. In the first 30 to 40 years after its incorporation, the growth of Burnaby was influenced by its location between the expanding urban centres of Vancouver and New Westminster, it first served as a rural agricultural area supplying nearby markets. It served as an important transportation corridor between Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the Interior, continues to do so.
As Vancouver expanded and became a metropolis, Burnaby was one of the first-tier bedroom-community suburbs of Vancouver itself, along with the city and district of North Vancouver, Richmond. During the suburbanization of Burnaby, "Mid-Century Vernacular" homes were built by the hundreds to cope with population increase, these houses are still common in the city. Burnaby has shifted in character over time from rural to suburban to urban. Burnaby occupies 98.60 square kilometres and is located at the geographical centre of the Metro Vancouver area. Situated between the city of Vancouver on the west and Port Moody and New Westminster on the east, Burnaby is further bounded by Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River on the north and south respectively. Burnaby and New Westminster collectively occupy the major portion of the Burrard Peninsula; the elevation of Burnaby ranges from sea level to a maximum of 370 metres atop Burnaby Mountain. Due to its elevation, the city of Burnaby experiences quite a bit more snowfall during the winter months than nearby Vancouver or Richmond.
Overall, the physical landscape of Burnaby is one of hills, valleys and an alluvial plain. The land features and their relative locations have had an influence on the location and form of development in the city. Burnaby is home to many commercial firms. British Columbia's largest commercial mall, the Metropolis at Metrotown, is located in Burnaby. Still, Burnaby's ratio of park land to residents is one of the highest in North America, it maintains some agricultural land along the Fraser foreshore flats in the Big Bend neighbourhood along its southern perimeter. Major parklands and waterways in Burnaby include Central Park, Robert Burnaby Park, Kensington Park, Burnaby Mountain, Still Creek, the Brunette River, Burnaby Lake, Deer Lake, Squint Lake. Given that the Simon Fraser University weather station is located 365 meters above sea level on Burnaby Mountain, the climate shown is cooler and wetter with more snowfall, as compared to the rest of the city; the SkyTrain rapid transit system, based in Burnaby, crosses the city from east to west in two places: the Expo Line crosses the south along Kingsway and the Millennium Line follows Lougheed Highway.
The SkyTrain has encouraged closer connections to New Westminster and Surrey, as well as dense urban development at Lougheed Town Centre on the city's eastern border, at Brentwood Town Centre in the centre-west and, most notably, at Metrotown in the south. Major north-south streets crossing the City include Boundary Road, Willingdon Avenue, Royal Oak Avenue, Kensington Avenue, Sperling Avenue, Gaglardi Way, Cariboo Road, North Road. East-west routes linking Burnaby's neighbouring cities to each other include Hastings Street, Barnet Highway, the Lougheed Highway, Canada Way and Marine Drive/Marine Way. Douglas Road, which used to cross the city from northwest to southeast, has been absorbed by the Trans-Canada Highway and Canada Way. Since the 1990s, Burnaby has developed a network of cycling trails, it is well served by Metro Vancouver's bus system, run by the Coast Mountain Bus Company, a division of TransLink. According to the 2011 Census, Statistics Canada reported that Burnaby had a population of 223,218 who resided in 86,839 of its 91,383 total dwellings, a 10.1% change from the 2006 census.
With a land area of 90.61 km2, it had a population density of 2,463.5/km2 in 2011. The median age is 39.8 years old younger than the British Columbia median of 41.9 years old. Burnaby's religious profile: 41.6% No religious affiliation 42.9% Christian 4.8% Buddhist 4.5% Muslim 2.9% Sikh 2.2% Hindu 0.3% Jewish 0.8% Other religions While Burnaby occupies about 4% of the land area of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, it accounted for about 10% of the region's population in 2001. It is the third most populated urban centre in British Columbia with an estimated population of 205,261. Like much of Greater Vancouver, Burnaby has always had large ethnic and immigrant communities: to cite two examples, North Burnaby near Hastings Street has long been home to many Italian restaurants and recreational bocce games, while Metrotown's ever-sprouting condominium towers in the south have been fuelled in part by more recent arrivals from China and South Korea. According to the 2006 Census, 54% of Burnaby residents have a mother tongue that is
Coast Mountain Bus Company
Coast Mountain Bus Company is the contract operator for bus transit services in Metro Vancouver and is a wholly owned subsidiary of the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority, known locally as TransLink, the entity responsible for public transit in the region. The buses form part of the integrated transit network of the Lower Mainland; the Coast Mountain Bus Company was created on April 1, 1999, concurrent with the implementation of TransLink. Bus service in Metro Vancouver was provided by BC Transit. Coast Mountain Bus Company operates the buses throughout Greater Vancouver, except in West Vancouver, which operates its own municipal transit system. One contract operator provides select Community Shuttle service, another contract operator provides HandyDART services: 210 bus routes in total Regular transit service Express coach service to suburban municipalities Trolley bus service – 13 routes in the City of Vancouver NightBus – special late-night routes after midnight, 8 routes with plans for expansion B-Line express buses Community shuttles – routes operating minibuses that connect to the larger ones SeaBus – passenger ferry across the Burrard InletThe regional transit network including bus routes, service levels and fares are set by TransLink.
B-Line services are a system of express bus routes with bus rapid transit elements using 60-foot low-floor articulated buses. All B-Line routes in operation feature all-door boarding as of January 1, 2018. Three routes are in operation: 95 B-Line: Hastings Street between Burrard station and SFU Exchange, via Kootenay Loop 96 B-Line: 104 Ave and King George Blvd between Newton Exchange and Guildford Exchange, via King George station and Surrey Central station 99 B-Line: Broadway between UBC Exchange and Commercial–Broadway station, via Broadway–City Hall stationThree additional routes are scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2019: 91 B-Line: 41 Ave between UBC Exchange and Joyce–Collingwood station, it will replace the 43 Express.

It was replaced by the Millennium Line's Evergreen Extension. 98 B-Line: Granville Street and No. 3 Road between Burrard station and Richmond Centre. It was replaced by the Canada Line. A Fare Paid Zone is a marked territory on which passengers must have valid proof of payment and present it for inspection upon request of a Transit Security Officer; these were only in effect in SkyTrain and SeaBus stations and vehicles until June 25, 2007, when the law was changed. Now, all buses, including West Vancouver buses, are designated Fare Paid Zones; the reason for implementing Fare Paid Zones on buses was to remove the responsibility of fare enforcement from bus drivers, as too many of them were being assaulted in disputes over fare payment. Fare enforcement on all buses are now the responsibility of the Transit Police and Transit Security Department. Officers may conduct a fare inspection; those who fail to pay the fare and retain proof of payment could be removed from the bus and/or fined $173.
