Douglas administered the mainland colony in absentia, remaining in Victoria. British Columbia's colonial capital, New Westminster would welcome its first ''resident'' governor, Frederick Seymour, in 1864. Meanwhile Sir Arthur Kennedy (Arthur Edward Kennedy) had been appointed to succeed Douglas as Governor of Vancouver Island.

As gold revenues dropped, the loans secured to pay for these projects undermined the economies of the colonies, and pressure grew in London for their amalgamation. Despite a great deal of ambivalence in some quarters, on August 6, 1866, the united colony was proclaimed, with the capital and assembly in Victoria, and Seymour was designated governor. birth_date Wikipedia:New_Westminster Dmoz:Regional North_America Canada British_Columbia Localities N New_Westminster Commons:Category:New Westminster, British Columbia
