THE METAPHOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA AS A FAMILY is one that extends beyond the surface. And Dr. Bonnie Henry is clearly our mother in that metaphor.
This week, as the province laid out its path to normalcy, Henry was reluctant to lay out hard and fast rules and schedules, saying everyone’s circumstances are unique and forcing the entire population into a rigid rubric wasn’t something she was willing to do.
Instead, she emphasized general principles such as cleanliness, physical distancing and compassion.
