Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier Horgan, Dr. Bonnie Henry, Minister Dix and Hon. Lisa Beare please have a read of this Article Link. This article provides similar insight into the Live Event Industry in Canada as well and the Current Emergency on our hands right now with the Live Event Industry!
BC has banned Drive-In style event with more than 50 cars, yet every other province AB and east has safely held min 200 car caps which is financially feasible. Contrary to the 50 car cap in BC it’s ok for airlines to fly full, Costco can have 1500 people in the building and schools can have 2000 people in the building.
The Live Event Industry went to $0 income in March, and will not return until there is a vaccine or treatment not likely until 2021. Our industry has had cancellations in the billions to which NO business interruption insurance covers! Most professionals and businesses have already depleted their 6 x month reserves and DON’T have the resources to wait out the pandemic any longer!
Expand the Car Cap to min 200 like every other province in Canada. The Live Event Industry cannot continue to run in a vacuum! We NEED further Government support other than debt instruments to preserve the industry professionals and businesses!
