Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement in honour of Easter:
“Easter is being celebrated by Christians in British Columbia and around the world this weekend.
“During these challenging times, we are reminded of the power of love, humility and self-sacrifice as exemplified by the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“Easter is a time of joy and hope for Christians – and there is much to be hopeful for this spring. The finish line is in sight, but we need to keep working hard to protect our loved ones and communities.
“Many people will still be spending this holiday away from their family and friends, and I want to thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made to help keep communities safe over the last year. The COVID-19 pandemic has been incredibly difficult, but we can look forward to better days soon.
“To everyone celebrating Easter this weekend, I wish you a safe, blessed and joyful holiday.”
