VICTORIA - Premier Christy Clark released the following statement to commemorate Thanksgiving weekend:
"Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to gather together to celebrate and appreciate loved ones and life's many blessings.
"In British Columbia, we are fortunate for countless reasons, including the ability to grow and produce all the traditional trimmings of a Thanksgiving feast. British Columbia is doing well, our economy is stable and growing, and we are on the right track. I am grateful to serve as Premier, and proud of our province, communities and hard-working families.
"Thanksgiving weekend is a time to reflect on our blessings, and when possible to help those less fortunate. I know many British Columbians will be donating their time, food and service at community shelters and food banks this weekend. Volunteering your time is a wonderful way to show your gratitude.
"I hope families find time this weekend to come together and take a moment to appreciate the opportunity, beauty and the unparalleled quality of life here in British Columbia.
"I wish all British Columbians a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving."
