Health Minister Adrian Dix just spoke to this story. Says Vancouver is the best possible place for the NHL to come because the province enforces public health rules thoroughly and completely. #bcpoli #covid19BC #NHL
Dix says the players, the fans, those working at arenas and British Columbians in general expect the rules to be followed. "That is our advantage in this, it is not our disadvantage." #bcpoli #covid19bc
Dix says the NHL will make it's decision and have consideration that may make Vegas a better place than Vancouver. "But frankly, if you are talking the health of the players, if you are talking about health of society....this is place to come and I hope they come." #bcpoli #NHL

Here is a quick thread about BC Place/Vancouver playing host to World Cup 2026 games.
The expectation now is BC will find out next week if Vancouver will be allowed back into the bid book.
The sense is FIFA will give thumbs up to Vancouver. #bcpoli
Once Vancouver gets the thumbs up, that will mean 3 Canadian cities are being considered for 10 games.
Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver all want at least 4 or 5 games.
Making it work financially with 2 or 3 games is very tough. #bcpoli
Vancouver and Toronto are the FIFA favourites. Bigger cities, with greater international reach.
They have both been successful hosts for FIFA before for U20 and Women's World Cups. #bcpoli

NEW - British Columbia will NO LONGER be requiring vaccination in the extended health care system. The commitment has been paused and it is unclear if this may happen eventually. Instead employees must show vaccination status by March 31. #bcpoli
Dr. Henry says this is based on consultation with the regulated health care professions. Mentions there has been a delay on Novovax vaccine arriving in BC. #bcpoli
Henry says there will be a 'measured approach' with each college. "This is different than our original vision." #bcpoli

The final 32 is before us.
What is the most iconic animal/creature in B.C.
Here is the updated bracket. Voting begins now. #bcpoli
Orca Whale vs. Pacific White-Sided Dolphin
The Orca Whales along BC's coast are some of the most studied whales in the world.
The White Sided Dolphin love company. They often swim in groups of 10 up to 100.
Humpback Whale vs. Gray Whale
The Humpback Whale loves to feed along BC's coast as part of migration. They use what is called bubble bet feeding.
About 20,000 Gray Whales migrate each year along BC's coast and 200 or so resident whales will stay and feed.

The final quadrant. This is the specialty part of the bracket. Some are figments of the imagination. Some don't fit into other categories. Some are individual/groups of well known animal(s). One is a human in a suit. Let's go. #bcpoli
Ogopogo vs. Fin
The Ogopogo is more than a creature in a lake. It is a symbol of a city. A logo on a jersey. A statue in a park. And maybe a log floating in the water.
Fin is the mascot of the Vancouver Canucks.
Peacocks vs. Stanley Park Coyotes
I left Metro Vancouver before the whole peahens/peacocks take over Surrey thing. They also like Beacon Hill Park.
@j_mcelroy and I once watched a guy run around trying to get close enough to take a selfie with a Coyote at the SP pitch and putt.

Half the first round is done.
Dinner is over.
Now to the second half of the bracket.
Let's begin in the air. #bcpoli
Bald eagle vs. barn swallow
There is a country who uses the eagle as one of it's symbols. Then there is BC, where eagles gather in larger numbers THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.
Barn swallows are currently at risk.
Brant vs. California Quail
The brant or brent goose. There is a Brant festival every year in Parksville and Qualicum Beach.
They may have California in the name, by the Cali Quail is now a BC mainstay.
