Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement to mark Thanksgiving:
“Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the abundance of the fall harvest with family and friends, and in our communities. It’s when we come together and are thankful for the many blessings in our lives. It is also a time to reflect on, and help, those in need.
“Our government is putting people first and working hard to make sure no one gets left behind. From delivering affordable housing and child care, to expanding access to education and training, we are working every day to provide opportunities for all British Columbians.
“British Columbians are generous by nature. It’s a part of who we are. Thank you to every person around B.C. who has volunteered at a community kitchen or made a donation to their local food bank this weekend. You’ve helped make your community a stronger and more welcoming place.
“To everyone celebrating throughout the province, have a happy Thanksgiving!”
