Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement on Canada Day:
“In British Columbia and across the country, Canada Day is a reflection of everything that makes our country great: diversity, pride and peace. As other countries in the world face increasing uncertainty, we have never been more lucky to call ourselves Canadians.
“Our traditions, diversity and the hardworking men and women who help build strong, vibrant communities, make our country the envy of the world.
“This weekend, I hope you will be able to spend time with friends and family as you celebrate this beautiful, free and prosperous nation – and how fortunate we are to call it home.
“Happy Canada Day.”
