A completely satirical yet oddly practical guide to surviving and thriving in Canada's westernmost province. Having lived in nearly every province in the country before settling in B.C., Ian Ferguson can say with authority that things work differently here. With practical advice, little-known facts, and personal anecdotes, Ferguson tackles everything from how to recognize a local to how to survive both natural and unnatural disasters to how B.C. has been governed through the ages. "The Survival Guide to British Columbia" will make you question why you ever came here in the first place.
