Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement on Thanksgiving:
“Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family to celebrate and appreciate life's many blessings.
“In British Columbia and Canada, we have a lot to be thankful for. We live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, in a tolerant, diverse, and prosperous society.
“Our growing economy means more people can take care of loved ones – but we should never forget those who are less fortunate. To all those who donate their time, food and service at community shelters and food banks this long weekend – thank you.
“I wish all British Columbians a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving.”
