Premier John Horgan is off to Ottawa and Washington D.C this week.
Horgan will be meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discuss the wildfire state of emergency, softwood lumber and the opioid crisis.
He says “Working with our federal counterparts, we’ll find solutions to the urgent problems facing British Columbians. And we will make sure that the services people count on like childcare, affordable housing, and public infrastructure are also a priority in these discussions.”
After meeting with the Prime Minister tomorrow morning, Horgan will meet with other senior public officials.
He then travels to Washington for meetings with key trade officials on the softwood lumber dispute.
He says it’s all part of his program to ensure British Columbians can count on his government to work hard every day to get results for people.
