Canada: Southern Interior local governments push for casinos to be used as COVID-19 vaccination sites Colton Davies, Radio NL · January 13, 2021 at 9:00 pm The Southern Interior Local Government Association thinks casinos could be used as sites to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine. Kamloops [British Columbia] councillor and SILGA director at large Bill Sarai says the idea was brought up during a virtual meeting on Monday, and says the association is considering lobbying the provincial government to use those spaces. SILGA includes 37 cities, towns, districts, villages and regional districts in southern B.C., from Lillooet to Golden and Osoyoos to Clinton and Clearwater. “They’re a provincial agency. They’re clean. There’s plenty of parking. They’re well secure… And I think that would be an ideal location when we’re ready to roll out the vaccination, use those facilities. And that’s what the rest of SILGA will be doing as well,” Sarai says.
