The Father of Vancouver

Out of our candidates of Richard Moody, Gassy Jack, David Oppenheimer, and Lauchlan Hamilton, I believe the title of Father of Vancouver should be given to Richard Moody because he was the one to say where the new capital was which is New Westminster today, he also instructed the creation of the North Road. He also chose the routes for our first roads, and the sites for the first military reserves.
