About this title


Born just months before British Columbia ceased to be a British colony, Richard McBride juggled his imperial, national, and provincial identities while developing one of the most important political careers the province has ever seen. McBride firmly opposed Asian immigration and often promoted industrial development at the expense of First Nations interests. But he introduced party lines to stabilize the BC legislature; vigorously supported provincial causes in Ottawa; and, above all, encouraged the building of railways.

Book Description:

Boundless Optimism captures the spirit of both British Columbia and the man who led the province into a new era of growth and development.
