Today, BCHF Past President and Provincial Archivist Emeritus Gary Mitchell was interviewed by CFAX 1070 about the BC government’s promise to modernize the Royal BC Museum, as announced in last week’s throne speech.
Gary explains that “the decision to modernize the RBCM is fundamentally important to all of us in the province”. Documentary evidence and artifacts from the past are part of what it means to be a democratic society. Without these records and artifacts “we are lost”, as Gary puts it.
The Royal BC Museum and the Provincial Archives holds BC’s treasures. Modernizing will ensure British Columbia’s history will be safeguarded into the future.
