The message I heard in Prince Rupert and Lax Kw'alaams Band today was clear: the Northwest is ready for more jobs and opportunity.

We're working every day to make sure the opportunities are there for the next generation to live, work, and thrive in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The decision to approve or deny any pipeline construction was always going to be made in Ottawa by the Trudeau government. Our role has been to stand up and fight for BC, and protect our ocean, coastline, and way of life – and as of today we have secured what we insisted upon.

Thanks to our strong and consistent stand over the past 4 and a half years on the 5 conditions, our neighbours,...

However you choose to celebrate the season, we can best honour the spirit of Christmas...

Announcing our BC HOME Partnership Program
A month ago I led delegation to Ottawa with three women who've experienced loss as a result of the devastating opioid crisis sweeping North America, and hitting us hard at home in BC. In addition to sharing their personal stories of grief and bravery, we asked the federal government to partner with us on a number of initiatives to help fight this battle. They listened.

I'm pleased to say...

As the first province to move on carbon pricing in 2008, it’s clear BC has always supported a pan-Canadian approach as long as it’s done right: one fair price for all Canadians on carbon pollution. I was proud to join the Trudeau government and ten of my provincial and territorial colleagues today, to sign a new Canada-wide carbon pricing framework to fight climate change together.

In order...

BC is leading the country in growth - and as our communities grow, we are investing in services we all depend on.

By 2021, 70,000 people are expected to take advantage of...

Yesterday, Prime Minister Trudeau announced his decision to reject Northern Gateway and approve the Kinder Morgan Expansion project. Our position has been clear from day one: any project must meet BC’s 5 conditions. I look forward to the Prime Minister coming to BC to talk to British Columbians about why this project is in the national interest.

We are blessed in British Columbia to live in a place with so many spectacular communities, diverse cultures and generous people. Over the past week, I have been fortunate to visit Kitimat, Terrace, Smithers, Kamloops and Metro Vancouver, talking to the people who are not only driving our strong economy, but whose cultures and traditions provide us with the richness and diversity that makes BC...

With less than 5 days to go in #Movember, let’s keep the momentum going. I’m very proud of all the hard work #TeamBC2017 and Mo’Captain Greg Kyllo, BC Liberals Shuswap has done to raise awareness for this importance cause.
Spent a fantastic day in Kamloops seeing first-hand how the tech industry is helping diversify the local economy supporting families with exciting, well-paying jobs. iTel Networks had doubled in size over the past few years and is just one of 200 local tech companies in the region providing great opportunities.
Today, we’re moving forward on the largest single year investment in affordable housing in BC history with 68 new projects that will create 2,900 new units. In less than a year, we have committed $855 million to create close to 5,000 new units throughout BC – to make sure British Columbians always come first when buying or renting a home.

We’re able to do this because we’ve stuck to our plan...

Today I joined Grand Chief Ed John and Minister Stephanie Cadieux as the final report on Indigenous child welfare in BC was released at a special ceremony with the Musqueam First Nation. Right now in BC, indigenous children are 15 times more likely to be in foster care – that has to change, and that’s why we appointed Grand Chief Ed John as a special advisor.

Our government supports the...

Today I was in Ottawa with Terry Lake, first responders, medical experts and those who’ve lost loved ones to overdoses as we urged our federal partners to take further action on the opioid crisis.

622 in BC people have lost their lives because of an overdose – 60% of them from fentanyl. Each one of these deaths was preventable.

We’ve taken a number of steps to address this issue – forming...

Every year, Canadians from every region and from all walks of life come together to pay tribute to the men and women who served our country.

The 11th day of the 11th month was chosen because 98 years ago, it was hoped that moment marked the end to all wars.

Since that first Remembrance Day, tens of thousands of Canadian soldiers have answered the call – and fallen – in another World War, as...

It was an honour being at the grand opening of the Good Life Family Autism Hub in Richmond today.

Our government gave the centre a $20 million grant to help build a centre that would be a hub of knowledge and support.

This facility and...
