Several errors. BC is bounded on the north by Yukon and by the Northwest (not "Northern") Territories. Also, BC is the 3rd largest province, not the 5th (sorry, Sid!). Describing landforms you could have mentioned huge wooded areas, including rain forests, and semi-arid interior valleys. Also, with parks, how about the National Parks!

British Columbia's coastline is the Pacific Ocean, not the Atlantic. (2nd paragraph)

Vancouver is at the 49th parallel (longitude) but you give it as 53N. The map shown dos not show lat and long. Useless for me.

Dear Sid,
Thanks a lot for your attention. We corrected the info, and also we are going to correct the others too.
Best regards.

In Canada, there are NO States, they have provinces. That means British Columbia, in your description, is the 5th largest Province. And yes, this is being written by a Candian who lives in British Columbia.

"States in Canada". More like provinces of USA.
