“No subsi-tooths”: BC Premier deems Tooth Fairy as an essential service

"No subsi-tooths": BC Premier deems Tooth Fairy as an essential service
John Horgan has declared the Tooth Fairy an essential service amid the pandemic

B.C. Premier John Horgan took to Twitter on Friday to make the special announcement that the Tooth Fairy will not be hindered this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“I’m pleased to announce the Tooth Fairy is authorized as an essential service and may travel freely throughout British Columbia,” said Horgan in the tweet.

Horgan says many children and parents have reached out to him asking about this important line of work, as many are worried the beloved character would have to hang up its wings during the pandemic.

“I am pleased to welcome our legendary friend who provides the essential service of rewarding healthy habits and good brushing,” declared Horgan, “While we are physically distancing, we are all in this together, and I thank all ages and creatures for doing their part.”

Hoping to avoid imposters, he made it clear that “this permission only applies to registered ferries, no subsi-tooth-ions or fillings-in allowed.”

This is not the first exception the premier has made to the essential service list this year, as he also declared the Easter Bunny an essential service, giving the holiday bunny free rein to roam throughout the province to deliver Easter treats.

This announcement may take some worry off the shoulders of thousands of children across B.C. and prove, that even in a pandemic, magic really does exist.
