British Columbia This Week

What to Expect

The Council of the Federation meetings wrap up today, and the Premiers will continue to push for more sustainable and fair health care funding from the federal government. This will be the last time Premier Horgan leads the group of premiers.

Meanwhile, whatever political discussion there is in domestic B.C. politics will be focused on how Attorney General and Minister of Housing David Eby fired the board of directors of the government-owned housing agency, B.C. Housing.

Minister Eby is so far the only declared candidate to replace Premier John Horgan after he announced he would be stepping down as leader this coming fall.

The Week That Was

With the investment of $3.2 million from Community Emergency Preparedness funding, 84 First Nations and local governments will be able to enhance emergency operations centres.

The province is dedicating $8.4 million in funding to the B.C. community social services sector to advance reconciliation efforts.

Orders in Council
