McNab, C.
C. McNab was secretary of the Bank of British North America, which had its head office at No. 7, St. Helens Place, in London. As secretary, McNab was responsible for signing off on the Bank's accounts -- including debts and assets -- which was occasionally made public in the Daily Colonist.1 Seemingly from McNab's correspondence, he was an advocate for the seat of the government to be established in Victoria and not at New Westminster -- as was being discussed and debated in the late 1860s.2
