Premier’s statement on Canada Day

Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement to recognize Canada Day:

“This year on Canada Day, people from coast to coast to coast have much to reflect on. The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us that we are all connected and that we do our best when we work together. I am incredibly proud of how British Columbians have risen to this challenge.

“Our shared values as Canadians and British Columbians – of generosity, fairness and inclusion – have helped us pull together through one of the most difficult times in our history. We have seen acts of generosity as people have helped their neighbours and loved ones stay safe and cared for. We have discovered that our communities are full of everyday heroes and that no job is insignificant. We have seen that when presented with an obstacle, we have the innovative resources to overcome it, right here in B.C.

“Canada Day is also an opportunity to reflect on the work ahead of us to make British Columbia a safe place for everyone – free from violence and discrimination – as we continue to right the wrongs of our past and present. On this day, we reflect on our colonial history and reaffirm our government’s commitment to walking the path to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.

“We are all connected – our physical, mental and economic health is part of a whole. Let’s keep taking care of each other as we work together to build a stronger, more inclusive future.

“Happy Canada Day!”
