Horgan said the topic that came up most frequently was Covid.

“And that’s not just businesses, that’s where people are at as well. Everybody wants to know how we’re going to get out of this and how we’re going to get through it together,” he said.

Horgan called the two Mission ridings “very important.”

“Actually, every riding in BC is important. What we are trying to do is build a government that’s focused on the needs of the people. Addressing the challenges for small businesses, which we’ve heard today as we walked down the strip.”
