Russian British Columbia

Nathaniel Christopher

Earlier this yearI devoted a lot of time and energy to an article that I wrote out of simple passion for the subject: Russia’s colonial exploits in British Columbia.

Everyone knows that British Columbia was once a British Columbia. Some people know that it was once part of the Spanish Empire. But almost nobody is aware that parts of present-day British Columbia were once a part of Russia.

Until now…

I did a lot of research, interviews and so forth and put together an article about this for Russian Life Magazine.

It’d mean a great deal to me if y’all gave it a quick read!


I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.
