Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia

Confusingly, it is located on the Vancouver Island, while the city of Vancouver - isn't.

It was named after Queen Victoria (reigned 1837-1901), a monarch of the United Kingdom, as is Regina in Saskatchewan.

Curiously it has the only 2 "Green" MPs in Canada, Elizabeth May (federal) and (fill in).

Both sit for constituencies in Saanich, Metro Victoria.
