PRINCE GEORGE (February 15, 2021) – Interim Leader of the Official Opposition Shirley Bond released the following statement today for Family Day:
“Most years, Family Day is an opportunity for us to spend extra time in the company of our friends and loved ones.
“However, this year will look a little different for countless B.C. families who will be unable to spend time in person with each other due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I know how challenging that is, but my hope is that we will reach out to family and loved ones, especially those who live alone, check on how they are doing, and remind them that you care.
“COVID-19 has had an impact on all of us and now more than ever we need to find creative and innovative ways to support one another.
“On this Family Day let’s celebrate the strength of family, the importance of community, and how lucky we are to call this incredible province home.
“On behalf of my family and the entire BC Liberal Caucus I want to wish all British Columbians a safe and enjoyable Family Day long weekend!”
