As we Restart, our hopes are for a stronger, more united province in which people remain the focus of government, businesses succeed, and communities flourish

The following is a statement from Conservative BC leader Trevor Bolin, on today’s Restart Plan announcement:
Fort St. John: “I was pleased today in seeing the Premier, Ministers and Dr. Bonnie Henry roll out a much-needed plan of recovery for BC, and its people.
I was cautiously optimistic, over the past long weekend, that ending the circuit breaker would mean British Columbia’s restaurants could rehire laid off staff, and we would see reduced unemployment numbers in our communities with the next Stats-Can report in June.
Last week we asked Premier John Horgan and Dr. Henry to include a plan* that involved theatres, casinos and community building businesses. Seeing those included in today’s announcement brings me hope that the voices of British Columbians will continue to be heard as we get our province safely ‘Back-In-The-Black’.
Today we witnessed that the hard work of the people of BC has paid off and that it will continue to do so. I am proud of all British Columbians for doing their part during some very difficult times, both personally and in their business lives.
Our thoughts continue to be with those that have lost loved ones due to COVID, and our hopes looking forward are for a stronger more united province – one in which people remain the focus of Government, businesses succeed, and communities flourish.
In closing, I would ask the people of British Columbia to make their own plan this week for visiting businesses that are now allowed to reopen safely, and please have patience as businesses struggle to stay up to date on current changes.”
Trevor Bolin, leader
Conservative Party of BC
* We need actions going forward, not catch phrases and empty promises
* It's time for a Made-In-BC strategy so that we can get British Columbians back to work and get BC businesses Back-in-the-Black
