BC legislature supports Terry Fox Day

October 23, 2014

Victoria, BC Oct. 23, 2014 -- BC MLA (Port Moody-Coquitlam) Linda Reimer introduced a member's bill into the BC legislature yesterday calling for the second Sunday after Labour Day to be designated Terry Fox Day to coincide with the annual Terry Fox runs across the province. "This bill is so deserved," remarked Reimer, reading the Terry Fox Day Act to MLAs in the presence of members of the Fox family. The bill passed first reading and will be read a second time at the next meeting of the Legislature. BC Premier Christie Clark presented a plaque to Terry's father Rolly to commemorate the occasion.
