The #AccessibleCanada Act just received Royal Assent! A historic moment for Canada and for Canadians with disabilities. I am so proud of this Bill and of everyone who contributed to its success.
I cannot thank my team and Canada’s disability community enough. Thank you!

"On National Indigenous Peoples Day people around British Columbia and across Canada celebrate and honour the diverse cultures, knowledge, economies, governance, history and resilience of Indigenous peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial." You can read the full statement marking National #IndigenousPeoplesDay from Premier John Horgan here:It’s National Indigenous Peoples Day! Join in the celebrations going on all around the province. It’s a day to celebrate the knowledge, history and traditions of Indigenous peoples in Canada. It’s also a day to consider how each of us can make a contribution toward reconciliation by recognizing Canada’s colonial past and the legacy of the Residential School system, but also by partnering with Indigenous peoples to create a brighter future for everyone in British Columbia.
