VANCOUVER (April 10, 2020) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today for Easter:
“This weekend, many British Columbians will be celebrating Easter.
“Whether you were planning to hold an egg hunt for children, have dinner with friends and family, or attend church services, this long weekend will be different as we all must follow the public health instructions of Dr. Bonnie Henry to flatten the curve in our fight against COVID-19.
“Many of you will be celebrating virtually and I want to thank you for that. Our healthcare workers will be working around the clock this weekend. It’s important that we don’t allow our hospitals to be overwhelmed with cases from people who didn’t stay home.
“Next year, I look forward to celebrating these important festivities with you in person, but for now I hope all who can are able to enjoy this incredible long weekend in ways that are safe for our communities.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I’d like to wish all those celebrating a joyful and happy Easter!”
