Biggest Cities in British Columbia on the Map

Welcome to Beautiful British Columbia!

B.C. is Canada's mountain playground, from powder-white ski hills to prime surfing beaches. People flock from all over the country to visit (and live in) some of the more temperate parts of the province, while few dare to venture deeper into the mining and lumber centres of the Interior. Fasten your man-bun, button your Mackinaw jacket and try and name the 20 biggest cities by population!

Population is by population centre figures as of 2021, some communities have been merged!

Ladner and Tsawwassen aren't cities, they're both in Delta. Also, I'm not sure why Terrace is there if others like Salmon Arm aren't there.

I am using population centre figures so Delta is divided into the smaller communities seen here. Also the figures downsize Salmon Arm to just 12 thousand people. I may redo the quiz using a different metric, however, and that will solve these problems :)

I merged some of the contentious cities myself, and updated the quiz using the new 2021 data.
