Rename British Columbia to something less colonial and racist.

British Columbia is a colonial double whammy of a name that's got to go. To avoid an upheaval for businesses (especially small ones), it would help if the new name could retain the BC abbreviation. If a First Nations name cannot be found, how about "Bonacascadia", like Bonavista? Or "Bona Cascadia", with slightly different pronunciation, as per Latin linguistics? In either case, it's a vast improvement and rolls off the tongue when you say it five times fast -- try it for yourself!
