Alberta says committed to seeing Trans Mountain pipeline to completion

However, Clark said she didn't want to speculate as to whether Lt. -Gov. Weaver said that although he saw commonalities with the Liberals, he felt that that the Green's values were more in line with the NDP.

Horgan and Weaver said the agreement lays out a signed, good faith working arrangement for Guichon to consider in deliberations that could result in her asking the NDP to form a new government if the Liberals are defeated.

And, in a brief provincewide news conference Tuesday afternoon, she said she's fine with that. "That will be the exciting part, laying out putting in place an electoral system that will be ratified by the public to demonstrate that we can vote with your conscience, you can vote for who you want and still get people to work together".

The Liberals hold 43 seats, the NDP has 41 and the Greens three in the 87-seat legislature, which Clark said she plans to reconvene "as quickly as we possibly can".

The agreement also says that the NDP would not request a dissolution of the legislature, except following the defeat of a motion of confidence, and that the Greens would neither move nor vote non-confidence against the NDP in the next four years. "So then the Lieutenant Governor can decide whether to approach John Horgan or call an election".

"I am happy to take on any job that voters will give me", Clark said. Looking to the example minority and coaltion governments at the federal however, it seems very unlikely the NDP-Green pact will survive its four-year term. "I would just like to say mostly that I know we negotiated in all fairness and I thought we tried to find some common ground".

During the campaign, NDP leader John Horgan was harshly criticized for dodging important questions about his platform, including where he stands on the Site C dam construction project, and how he would pay for promises like removing Port Mann bridge tolls and eliminating Medical Service Plan premiums. That means all parties - Liberals, NDP, and Greens - have an incentive not to politicize the position and to figure out an arrangement that doesn't routinely involve the Speaker casting tie-breaking votes.

Horgan says after 16 years in Opposition, he is excited about the prospect of forming the next government.

The White House said Trump was being updated on the attacks in Manchester, England, by his national security team. He'll later to lay a wreath at the Yad Vashem, a Holocaust memorial, and deliver a speech at the Israeli Museum.

"It is an incredible document and it took a lot of work to get to that point", she said.

Christy Clark has said she will stay on as premier, but the Bowen-based NDP candidate West Vancouver Sea to Sky Candidate Michelle Livaja, says she sees that lasting only for a short while.

Even before the recounting had been completed in the extremely tight B.C. election, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley fired a warning shot over the bow of a potential new B.C. government by saying, "We understand that some oppose the twinning of the pipeline, and I respect their opinion".

Assuming Clark's government falls and Horgan becomes premier, as appears most likely, he would be wise to pursue a cautious and conciliatory agenda, tackling first the issues that can win support on all sides of the legislature.
