The premier shut down the fishing at Haida Gwaii which did not have the virus saying their main concern was people’s safety. Well two residents left the island and returned to their own people positive. The premier would not tell us where the two people went.
Now why is the gov’t not worried about the lower mainland people’s safety making masks MANDATORY everywhere! No masks you do t get in. It’s as simple as that!
