Vancouver has fallen in love with Imagine Van Gogh, the stunning immersive exhibition, and more people will be able to see Starry Night projected onto eight-metre high screens inside downtown’s Canada Place, since the event will be here all summer!
Thunderous cheering filled the place where George Floyd was pinned beneath a police officer’s knee nearly a year ago, begging for air and his mother. Many people wept and some sobbed hearing Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in Floyd's murder. https://t.co/IqzmxF7fAqhttps://t.co/aynomUlz7S
The death of George Floyd – a Black man from Minnesota – may not have happened here, but at least one academic says people in B.C. have a lot to learn after ex-officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts connected to Floyd’s death. https://t.co/QlkMTRQhiDhttps://t.co/Uf50JgSXKj
B.C.’s health officials say health care workers and hospitals are getting pushed to their limits as COVID-19 continues to spread across the province, with another 849 people testing positive for the virus since Monday. https://t.co/xqSJC8Q5d4https://t.co/vFpvZlwjO7

The gorgeous Imagine Van Gogh exhibition allows you to walk into the artwork, get fully illuminated by glittering stars, be surrounded by sunflowers, and dive eyes-first into Vincent Van Gogh’s post-impressionist imagination...

BC #covid19 Apr 20
Good: almost everything down a little (relatively speaking - there are still 849 new cases, a death and 13697 people isolated)
Bad: Hospitalizations/ICU up
Meh: 34484 vaccinations yesterday
Minister Dix closing comments, says families are getting sick with COVID - transmission is high - urging those who can to get their vaccine asap. "Keep going in the coming weeks to stop the spread and come to an end to this pandemic" @NEWS1130
Closing remarks - Dr Henry says it's been challenging but there is an end in sight, we can still have a summer IF we follow covid rules. Don't parties, no gatherings. "This virus is being transmitted easily in families" @NEWS1130
Final question - what purpose does a two step vaccine system serve? Dix says it's important to register to get immediate notifications once you're eligible. Says "the system is working really well". @NEWS1130
On whether or not flights from India will be banned given rising cases and variants of concern, Dix says the province is not taking that approach yet - but working to enforce quarantine orders when travellers enter BC. @NEWS1130
