Premier John Horgan has released the following statement in honour of Easter:
“This weekend, Christians in every part of British Columbia will gather with friends and family to celebrate Easter.
“Easter is a time of hope and joy for Christians around the world – a yearly reminder of the power of love, humility and self-sacrifice, as exemplified by the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“It also marks the end of Lent, a time of fasting and charitable giving, where Christians are called to participate in the redemption of the world through repentance and forgiveness.
“To all those British Columbians celebrating Easter this weekend, I wish you a blessed and joyful holiday.”
