Letters: Time for B.C. to get nasty

Dear Editor,

At the end of June, B.C. had reduced COVID-19 cases to about 150 active cases and about 15 new cases daily.

This wasn’t as good as the Maritime provinces, or Manitoba, but it was the best of the four provinces with international airports, and much better than Ontario and Quebec which border the huge number of cases in New York State. 

Since then, B.C. has done a poor job and cases have surged, especially after  long weekends, often setting daily records.

B.C. and Quebec are now the worst provinces per capita for active cases, and B.C. has the highest test positivity rate.

Quebec and Ontario are having resurgences, too, and are introducing more restrictive measures on group sizes, and larger fines for those who flout measures.

When will B.C. take strong action?
