Minister’s statement on interim supply bill

Minister’s statement on interim supply bill

March 4, 2021 at 10:42 am  BC, News, Politics

Selina Robinson, Minister of Finance, has released the following statement regarding the introduction of the interim supply bill to the legislative assembly:

“Twelve months ago, COVID-19 turned our lives upside down. Since then, the Province has invested over $10 billion in COVID-19 relief and recovery measures, contributing more per capita to businesses and people than any other province. These measures have focused on protecting people’s health and livelihoods through supports for workers, businesses, communities, health care and other critical services.

“Next month, we will introduce Budget 2021, which will continue to be responsive to the needs of people, businesses and communities to see them through the pandemic and into a strong economic recovery that supports all British Columbians.

“The interim supply legislation introduced today will provide bridge funding between the end of the fiscal year on March 31 and the last day of the spring session when the provincial budget is formally passed. Introducing this kind of interim supply legislation is common practice in British Columbia each spring.

“COVID-19 has been an unprecedented challenge. While we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, our government will continue to ensure we keep people safe, while creating the foundation for a sustainable recovery for everyone.”
