YOU’VE HEARD Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry say it repeatedly: COVID-19 is in every region of B.C.

She could very well have said, “There are tall buildings in every region of B.C.”

Technically, yes, but we know very well where most of the tall buildings are congregated.

The disparity between the Lower Mainland and the rest of British Columbia when it comes to COVID-19 is almost as stark as the political disparity between urban and rural B.C.
