That's the O'Shea building, designed by successful Seattle architect Louis Mendel. The Bebb and Mendel firm tried getting business in Vancouver and Victoria but were mostly unsuccessful. But there was a lot of cross-pollination meaning buildings up and down the west coast looked remarkably similar. I have heard that some downtown Victoria buildings were practically mail-order designs from other cities.

St. Andrew's Cathedral is a replica of a church in Quebec, I believe.

Indeed it is in Longeuil across the river from Montreal the interior and most of it is different but the exterior front is the same design

 

St Andrews lost its bell tower spire in a windstorn around 1905 the St Andrews Statue also was lost in a different windstorm replace by a cross

Great, we get rid of the stupid gun registry, but now we have to register our bedbugs.  Responsible bedbug owners do not kill people...
