Premier David Eby has issued the following statement marking Christmas Day:
“Tomorrow, many people in British Columbia, including a few at our home, and around the world will celebrate Christmas. Many will attend church services and rejoice in a message of peace and love.
“Christmas is a time when people gather with friends and family to share food, exchange gifts and enjoy the many traditions of the season.
“We have so much in British Columbia to be grateful for. I encourage British Columbians to reflect on the blessings in our lives, while also celebrating the season’s values of charity, compassion and generosity.
“I wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!”
