Candidates issue joint statement encouraging everyone to get vaccinated

Editor:

A 19-year-old voter from Williams Lake has asked local candidates to release a joint statement encouraging people to get vaccinated. We thank him for his leadership.

As the candidates for the Conservative, Liberal, NDP and the Green parties in the riding of Cariboo-Prince George, we would like to encourage all eligible members of our communities to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

We are extremely fortunate to live in a time where safe and highly effective vaccines are available to prevent COVID-19. Vaccinations save lives.

Coming together as a community to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is how we can all do our part and contribute to the end of the pandemic while keeping our friends, family, neighbours and health care workers safe.

Get out there and get the shot for all of us! Thank you.

Todd Doherty – Conservative Party of Canada

Garth Frizzell – Liberal Party of Canada

Audrey McKinnon – New Democratic Party

Leigh Hunsinger-Chang – Green Party of Canada
