Premier’s statement on Canada Day

July 1, 2024 at 7:43 am  BC, News, Politics, Provincial

Premier David Eby has issued the following statement marking Canada Day:

“Canada Day is a time to come together with family, friends and neighbours to celebrate this wonderful country we call home.

“Canada is rightly known as a place of safety, a place of opportunity and a place of beauty, and people from around the world come here to build a better life.

“Our diversity is a strength, and we are at our best when everyone is free to be themselves – no matter their faith or background, who they love or how they identify.

“Canada’s historical wrongs against Indigenous Peoples make today difficult for many, and we must all continue to learn from the past to build a better future for everyone based on reconciliation, respect and the recognition of Indigenous rights.

“Today, let us celebrate our country, reflect on what it means to us and look for ways we can make it a more welcoming place for all.

“From my family to yours, happy Canada Day!”
