All of us at Salts wish you a Happy BC Day! In honor of our beautiful province, here are a few fun facts:
- The British Columbia Day Act was first introduced to the Legislative Assembly in 1974. The aim of the Bill was to create a statutory holiday on the first Monday in August to recognize the pioneers in the province and the act gained royal assent in 1996.
- The Steller’s Jay (a bird), the Pacific Dogwood (a flower), Jade (a mineral), Spirit Bear (mammal), and the Western Red Cedar (a tree) are all provincial symbols.
