Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement to recognize Canada Day:
“Today, the Province joins people gathering together in communities throughout British Columbia and across Canada to celebrate Canada Day.
“Canada is known for its dynamic beauty, diverse cultures and the people who have chosen to make this country their home. Canada Day provides us with an opportunity to celebrate our diversity by honouring the values of equality, inclusion and a welcoming spirit that unite us all as Canadians.
“As we work together to build a more inclusive and multicultural society, we must also recognize our responsibility to right the historical wrongs that continue to affect the lives of Indigenous peoples in this country.
“All Canadians have a role in advancing reconciliation, understanding our common history and supporting those who are leading this important work.
“On Canada Day, we promise to keep moving forward on this journey together – and together we will create lasting change and a better future for everyone in B.C.
“Happy Canada Day!”
