The BC Liberals win a minority government

16 May 2017

Horgan's post-election speech on Tuesday night hit on some of those issues as a potential signal to the Greens.

And Andrew Weaver's Green party even threatened at times to secure the balance of power in a minority government.

With the vote count not complete, the Liberals, which are not linked to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's federal Liberal Party, had won 43 seats in the 87-seat provincial legislature.

For now, though, we wait for the final count later this month.

He said in both cases, the minority governments fell apart forcing a subsequent election, with the NDP losing seats in both instances while the Liberals gained majority victories.

Weaver has proven himself to be a pragmatist who has supported Liberal budgets - something Horgan criticized him over.

A few other close races could also hinge on the still-to-come count of absentee ballots.

The three party leaders did not speak to supporters until after midnight.

Should the Liberals win that seat, the party would have a majority - but if the seat stays with the NDP, the New Democrats and Green Party could hypothetically form a coalition or governing arrangement that would make NDP Leader John Horgan the premier. But Furstenau still comfortably won the riding by 1,500 votes over her nearest challenger from the NDP.

Clark snubbed her, turned her back on her, and spawned a social-media hashtag campaign called #IamLinda.

"We agreed that they're not prepared to defend our coast against increasing tanker traffic", Horgan said. But that handful of seats, mostly in Metro Vancouver, has changed the landscape of the whole province.

"Voters know best. And they reminded us tonight that we are far from ideal", Clark said.

Voters have sent a clear message they want political parties to find a way to work together, said the Liberal leader after a roller-coaster evening of flip-flopping election results. "What do we want to leave for our kids that is better than we found it". "And they voted for an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top".

But NDP leader John Horgan is striking a defiant tone the day after British Columbians went to the polls.

Rogers is also a former FBI special agent and he was endorsed by the FBI Agents Association in a statement released Saturday. While it's not yet known what Comey himself plans to do in his post-FBI life, he's unlikely to retire from public view.

Weaver heralded the breakthrough of his candidates on Vancouver Island.

"In the days ahead there will be plenty of discussions taking place between all parties".

"If it's true that British Columbians voted for a change, that must mean, if you're Andrew Weaver, ousting Christy Clark from government", Johnston said Wednesday.

The Liberals ran a campaign during this election that focused on economic growth and job creation, billing themselves as the stable hand on the tiller and the most responsible stewards of the provincial economy. The NDP and Greens were perceived as opponents of resource development such as the Site C hydroelectric project, the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion, and liquified natural gas proposals.

It has been four years since Clark promised the province a potentially trillion dollar LNG industry.
