VICTORIA (September 4, 2020) – BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson and Labour Critic MLA John Martin issued the following joint statement in recognition of Labour Day, celebrated this year on September 7.
“As we head into the Labour Day long weekend here in B.C. it’s important to take the opportunity to give thanks to the hard-working and industrious British Columbians and labour workers who built our great province and fought for the safe working environments and workers’ protections that all of us appreciate today.
“Canada is a global leader in workplace practices thanks to pioneering British Columbians who worked tirelessly to promote greater labour laws, improve workers’ rights, and create safer work environments for all who live and work within our province.
“In this era of COVID-19, it’s important that we continue to fight to keep our environments safe by preventing the further spread of this global pandemic. This means continuing to physically distance and following the important health advice of public health officials while at home, at work, and out in public.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, we want to wish all British Columbians a safe and happy Labour Day long weekend.”
