Subject Matter of the Lobbying Activity
Specific Topics of Lobbying Communications Intended Outcomes Associated Subject Matters
COVID-19 related matters (following the Provincial Health Officer's directives we closed all BC casinos on March 16, 2020):
- ongoing discussions with various ministries as it relates to the impact of the casino closures to our business; eg: temporary job losses, loss of revenue to municipal governments, and 100% loss of revenue but continued expense payments. Asks could include assistance in implementing our reopening plans
- re-opening plans as they pertain to non-casino related outlets, ie: restaurants and hotels, and the capacity restrictions that will be associated with each outlet. Ask is to ensure that restaurant outlets are recognized as separate from casinos and are part of the Provinces’ restaurant re-opening plans
