Today, the provincial government announced "the BC HealthGuide handbook will now be available in Chinese and Punjabi to enhance access to health information for B.C.'s diverse and multi-lingual communities." In a news release, Health Minister George Abbott said, "We are meeting our throne speech commitment to translate the BC HealthGuide into Chinese and Punjabi and to give families in these communities better access to health information in their mother languages." Huzzah! Truly, the Campbell administration is showing its commitment to British Columbia's Chinese and Indo-Canadian communities - more than two years after the government released a French translation of the handbook.
