Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, issued the following joint statement Saturday regarding updates on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in B.C.:
The Province is poised to introduce legislation that will prevent any B.C. government from directing ICBC to make payments to government from its excess optional insurance capital.
This will ensure that any future surpluses remain with ICBC to be used for the benefit of drivers.
Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chief Woos, Scott Fraser, B.C.’s Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, and Carolyn Bennett, federal Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, have issued the following statement:
Since 2014, more than one in four fatal crashes on B.C. roads have involved distracted driving, which is why ICBC and police continue to combat this dangerous driving behaviour that claims 76 lives each year.*
This month, drivers will be hearing one message – take a break from your phone when you're behind the wheel. Not only is it dangerous, but the costs can add up quickly.
The importance of finding a path forward has been a priority for the RCMP.
The BC RCMP are pleased to confirm that discussions with the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs have led to an agreement on Wednesday, February 26th which supports their upcoming meetings with government representatives this week.
The week began with several altercations between protesters and police in the province.
First, was this release from Cpl. Madonna Saunderson:
Actions by and in support of the Wet’suwet’en land defenders are as much about government failure to resolve issues around Indigenous rights and title as they are about pipelines and gas.
Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, have issued the following joint statement regarding updates on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in British Columbia:
After years of respectful dialogue, the B.C government has partnered with the Saulteau and West Moberly First Nations and the federal government to achieve a historic agreement that strives to protect southern mountain caribou in northeastern B.C., while considering the social and economic well-being of communities and stakeholders in the region.
