VANCOUVER (August 5, 2019) – BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson released the following statement today for B.C. Day:
“Today I’m proud to join millions of British Columbians across our province in celebrating the incredible place we are fortunate to live in. The people who live, work, and raise their families here are what make British Columbia special.
“B.C. Day is a day for us to enjoy everything British Columbia has to offer, and a time for us to recognize and celebrate the values and hard work that make our province so great.
“Over 5 million people call British Columbia home, and 60,000 newcomers arrive each year to share in all that makes our province unique. Together we are celebrating equality, openness, and opportunity for all.
“Ensuring our environment is protected so our children and future generations can enjoy living here is a priority for myself and the entire BC Liberal Caucus. You can spend your whole life exploring coastlines, parks, and hiking trails throughout British Columbia and you will never cease to be amazed by the natural beauty of our province.
“The BC Liberal Caucus will continue to work hard to preserve our world-class environment while helping to create opportunity for all British Columbians. I hope that everyone enjoys today in a British Columbia that they can be proud to call home.
“Happy B.C. Day!”
