Premier declares Easter Bunny an essential service

Horgan makes eggs-emption

While non-essential travel into and within British Columbia is being strongly discouraged heading into the Easter long weekend, Premier John Horgan has made one 'eggs-emption.'

Wednesday morning, Horgan issued a special exception, welcoming the Easter Bunny to the province, and labelling the good rabbit's work an essential service.

“I am pleased to welcome you to our province for your annual egg-delivering duties,” Horgan said. “This year, we're all looking out for our loved ones, and festivities look quite different. I know that you're also taking extra care, so even if you can't make it to every home, I want to thank you for sharing your positive spirit and happiness with kids and families across the province.”

During Tuesday's daily press conference, Provincial Heath Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry urged all religious faiths to celebrate upcoming celebrations through virtual gatherings, rather than meeting in person.

Horgan, Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix held a conference call with 130 faith leaders in the province Tuesday to discuss these issues.
