Talking like a British Columbian (old school) - A basic dictionary  (By irishgit (158) on 05/06/2008)

My home is a place with at least two personalities. The better known one is the urban, desperately sophisticated face, trying so hard to be a "world class city" whatever that is. The other is the traditional resource based region, which still makes up a vast proportion of the economy. This is a brief list designed to keep alive some of the terms that were once common throughout the province but are now viewed with incomprehension by most of the urban newcomers. 5 = Fascinating
