British Columbia

British Columbia also commonly referred to by its initials BC or B.C., (French: Colombie-Britannique, C.-B.), is a province located on the west coast of Canada. British Columbia is also a component of the Pacific Northwest, along with the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington. The province's name was chosen by Queen Victoria in 1858, reflecting its origins as the British remainder of the Columbia District of the Hudson's Bay Company. In 1871, it became the sixth province of Canada.

The capital of British Columbia is Victoria, the fifteenth-largest metropolitan region in Canada, named for the Queen who created the Colony of British Columbia. The largest city is Vancouver, the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada, the largest in Western Canada, and the second-largest in the Pacific Northwest. In October 2013, British Columbia had an estimated population of 4,606,371 (about 2.5 million of whom were in Greater Vancouver).

we all know how cold it can get in BC, but what's it like in summer? does it get very hot?

Here in Adelaide South Australia, it does get as hot as 40 - 45C (104 - 113F) at least once every summer.

Some info would be interesting
