As we take another step in BC's Restart Plan, it's a good opportunity to check in on each other and make sure we're all moving in the right direction. The province's immunization plan is working, thanks in no small part to all of you who posted vaccination photos as part of our #ChamberChangeMaker campaign. Please keep doing so as we set our sights on Canada Day, and a further loosening of restrictions.
All indications are that businesses are in for an exceptional summer. Visitors from across BC have already begun arriving in Greater Victoria, with many more from across the country expected July 1.
However, as Chamber CEO Bruce Williams told Jack Knox of the Times Colonist, there is still plenty of uncertainty. We need to know when the US border will open, and we need to respect that individuals and businesses will move at different speeds when it comes to opening up. Mandatory mask policies, for example, could become a source of conflict after July 1 (we'll have more information and resources on this in the next edition of BizNews).
