Vancouver was originally named Gastown and began as a settlement which grew around the site of a makeshift tavern on the western edges of Hastings Mill that was built on July 1, 1867 and owned by proprietor Gassy Jack. The original site is marked by the Gastown steam clock. Gastown then formally registered as a townsite dubbed Granville, Burrard Inlet. The city was renamed "Vancouver" in 1886, through a deal with the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR). The Canadian Pacific transcontinental railway was extended to the city by 1887. The city's large natural seaport on the Pacific Ocean became a vital link in the trade between Asia-Pacific, East Asia, Europe, and Eastern Canada.

May 2 marked the 35th anniversary of Vancouver, BC hosting a World's Fair.  The 1986 World Exposition on Transportation and Communication, popularly known as Expo '86, was held from May 2 to October 13, 1986. It was only the second time in the history of World's Fairs, that a Canadian city hosted one ( the first being Expo 67 in Montreal ) and so far has been the last World's Fair hosted by a North American city.

Greenpeace's first 'activist' action took place in September 1971, when the founders of the group chartered a boat, the Phyllis Cormack, piloted by John Cormack, and tried to sail to the Alaskan island of Amchitka, where the U.S. Army planned to perform an underground nuclear test in a very active earthquake zone. The ship sailed towards Amchitka and faced the U.S. Coast Guard ship Confidence[28] which forced the activists to turn back. Because of this and the increasingly bad weather the crew decided to return to Canada only to find out that the news about their journey and reported support from the crew of the Confidence had generated sympathy for their protest.[28] After this, Greenpeace tried to navigate to the test site with other vessels, until the U.S. detonated the bomb.[28] The nuclear test was criticized and the U.S. decided not to continue with further test plans at Amchitka.

The sinking of Rainbow Warrior, codenamed Opération Satanique, was a bombing operation by the "action" branch of the French foreign intelligence services, the Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure (DGSE), carried out on 10 July 1985. During the operation, two operatives sank the flagship of the Greenpeace fleet, Rainbow Warrior, at the Port of Auckland in New Zealand on her way to a protest against a planned French nuclear test in Moruroa. Fernando Pereira, a photographer, drowned on the sinking ship.

France initially denied responsibility, but two French agents were captured by New Zealand Police and charged with arson, conspiracy to commit arson, willful damage, and murder. The scandal resulted in the resignation of the French Defence Minister Charles Hernu, while the two agents pleaded guilty to manslaughter and were sentenced to ten years in prison. They spent a little over two years confined to the French island of Hao before being freed by the French government

The city of Auckland was founded on 18 September 1840 and was officially declared New Zealand's capital in 1841,[19][20] and the transfer of the administration from Russell (now Old Russell) in the Bay of Islands was completed in 1842. However, even in 1840 Port Nicholson (later renamed Wellington) was seen as a better choice for an administrative capital because of its proximity to the South Island, and Wellington became the capital in 1865.
