1. Not specifically defining what local travel means is a mistake. We've been operating on a "use your common sense" basis for months now and...well, here we are.
Other jurisdictions attempting to curve case spikes have been specific - down to the kilometres you're allowed to travel away from your home, how many hours a day you can be out and for what reasons, specifically.
2. I think we're about to see a lot more businesses get shut down, fined for non-compliance with Covid safety plans.

To date, per the public safety ministry, we've only seen 4 businesses fined for violating public health orders vs 26 individuals

Meanwhile, WorkSafe has issued "more than 220 orders to dozens of employers across the province who broke rules meant to protect workers" from #COVID19. Only 1 was actually fined, per @byGawley's reporting from earlier this month
Here's the link to that reporting:

This is not a new issue for BC. In the early days of the pandemic, it felt like a little benefit of the doubt was appropriate as the province tried to find its feet in response to the pandemic.
But it's starting to feel like at least one of two things are happening:
a) Information relevant to public safety and understanding of the pandemic's impact is being withheld (sometimes for "privacy" reasons, sometimes with 0 justification); and/or

b) The situation behind the scenes is so hectic and strained that even basic info can't be communicated
Neither is good. Both could be true.

The premier and the PHO have said there are too many urgent matters that need attention now to allow for the set up of a system to collect disaggregated data about how different demos (racial, ethnic, income, ability) are being affected.
