Premier John Horgan says B.C.'s plan to fully re-open primary and secondary schools in September will be an ``unprecedented challenge.''

But he says medical experts, who have provided dependable advice throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, believe the plan is workable.

Speaking while announcing a new regional cancer centre in Surrey, Horgan says his government would not put children at risk if ``the danger was overwhelming.''

The BC Teachers' Association says in a statement that full re-opening of schools next month ``needs a lot more work'' to keep children and teachers safe.
