VANCOUVER (February 15, 2020) – BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson released the following statement today for Family Day:
“This long weekend I’m proud to join millions of British Columbians across our province in celebrating Family Day.
“Family Day is an opportunity for us to spend extra time with our closest friends and loved ones enjoying all that our province has to offer.
“Family is about looking out for those who count on you the most. That could be your kids, your grandchildren, or family members who need loving and attentive care their whole lives – like my sister, who lives with a severe disability.
“Throughout British Columbia, families of all shapes and sizes are fundamental to a healthy and functioning society.
“On Family Day it is also important to look out for those who don’t have one. Because everyone born in British Columbia — and all those who arrive from somewhere else — deserve to be loved and know that they belong here.
“I hope that everyone has a chance to spend time with friends and family in a British Columbia that they can be proud to call home.
“On behalf of my family and the entire BC Liberal Caucus I want to wish all British Columbians a safe and happy Family Day long weekend!”
