Streamed live 8 hours agoBritish Columbia’s Premier John Horgan spoke out on Wednesday against what he characterized as the “rise of racism” in the province amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.“Hate has no place in British Columbia,” he said, adding that it is “absolutely unacceptable” for people to take out their frustrations amid the ongoing health crisis on people of different races, religion, or sexual orientation.Horgan also said he was happy to see some individuals stand up against racist behaviour, and called on people to do so with “increasing regularity.”B.C. entered Phase 2 of the restart of the provincial economy on Tuesday, and Horgan said his government has been working with WorkSafeBC and public health officers to ensure people feel safe returning to work.Guidelines were previously released for industries able to reopen in Phase 2, such as restaurants, cafes and pubs, salons and personal services, real estate, schools and parks.Subscribe to Global News Channel HERE: Global News on Facebook HERE: Global News on Twitter HERE: Global News on Instagram HERE: #coronavirus #COVID19 #health #JohnHorgan
