Andrew Wilkinson, Leader of the Official Opposition, and Jackie Tegart, BC Liberal Caucus Chair, released the following statement in celebration of International Women’s Day:
“Today we are celebrating women across the world who work hard to push for progress so they can be paid equally, have equal access to opportunity and break down barriers to their success.
“The BC Liberal caucus is continuing to make equality a priority, which is why we introduced the Equal Pay Certification Act. Now is the time to discuss how we can work together to achieve pay equity.
“Today is the day to hold firm to our commitment to create a truly equal society, together. The B.C. Legislature has the most women elected in Canada, so what better place to start this conversation than right here.”
