Mount McBride is one of two peaks in British Columbia named for BC Premier Sir Richard McBride. The other is Mount Sir Richard. There is a second Mount McBride—named for Captain Kenneth Gilbert McBride of The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, a Canadian officer killed in action during the Second World War—elsewhere in BC and yet another in the Yukon.
