BC Premier John Horgan said the provincial state of emergency will continue in BC for another two weeks.
"We renewed our state emergency. We did so to keep people healthy, and safe. It will remain in place for the foreseeable future and we will renew it every two weeks," he said this afternoon.
"COVID-19 is still here."
Horgan announced funding for 2,000 orphaned or inactive wells to be cleaned up in northern BC.
"Communities will be helping us out," said Horgan about what wells to work on first.
"This is a good example of when governments work together."
