PROVINCIAL HEALTH OFFICER DR. BONNIE HENRY made a lot of people very, very happy this week when she eased restrictions on gathering to allow outdoor meetings of up to 10 people.

The people she made happy are the ones already diligently following her rules and regulations.

Some may be trepidatious about the high case counts B.C. is still seeing every day, but Dr. Henry seems very confident about the safety presented by outdoor settings.

She has repeatedly told us that the virus is primarily spreading inside households and in workplaces where it is impossible to keep distanced.

If we don’t trust Dr. Henry’s guidance, it’s probably time we ask ourselves if we trust anyone anymore.
