Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement in recognition of Thanksgiving:
“Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the abundance of the fall harvest and to share nature’s bounty with our families, our friends and our communities. It is a time to come together to give thanks for all that we enjoy and to help those in need.
“We are blessed to live in a beautiful province of boundless opportunity. Our government is working hard to make sure everyone enjoys the benefits as we build a stronger British Columbia together.
“This season, we have so many to thank as we continue the fight against COVID-19. We also owe thanks to those who battled forest fires, and many others who continue to serve on the front lines of the poisoned drug crisis. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do.
“I want to take this opportunity to also thank all those who volunteer to make their communities better and those who donate to food banks and other charities. Sharing makes our lives rich and meaningful.
“To everyone celebrating, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!”
