I know that the Pacific Northwest in the US had a strong labor movement and so did California, but I don't know how they compare or relate to BC. Maybe it's because BC continues to be dependent on natural resources while the US West coast isn't as much.

Nowadays, I don't perceive the US West coast as being that much more pro-labor than the northeast New England/upper Midwest, but BC definitely seems more pro-labor, pro-union, than places further east (besides more northern parts of Canada).
