The English came to these shores and to this day continue their colonial occupation. End white stupidity by teaching Canada's real history to our white Canadian children so they don't grow up as stupid as our politicians.
Change the name of British Columbia to a name chosen by Native Elders.

Growing up in Canada even though Im white whenever we learned anything about first nations/indigenous people thats what interested me the most because it is the history of the original people of this land and honestly i'm starting to cry writing this because of how sad it is how unfairly the indigenous people of canada have been treated and I hope as many things possible get renamed so at least in name we can reclaim the land for first nations people and their culture

Renaming this province will not rid of us the shameful legacy of oppressive colonization, but it will show a commitment to reconciliation.

It's amazing to see this kind of action in other places of Canada!❤ many communities in Nunavut are going back to their traditional Inuktitut names as well. Even if its hard for some people to say. This would be a step in the right direction for Canada
