B.C.'s future unclear

Looking through the power sharing agreement between B.C.'s two ambitious opposition parties, it's hard to see what the three-member B.C. Greens gain in supporting the 41-member B.C. NDP. He echoed Clark's election-night comments that the almost exact split in votes between the B.C. Liberals and the NDP is a message to all parties to work together.

The likelihood of a renewed debate on the Trans Mountain pipeline drew reaction from outside the province even before Horgan said the parties have a responsibility to "defend" the coastline of British Columbia and stop the pipeline, which would increase tanker traffic seven-fold off the west coast.

Clark says it seems likely the Liberals will lose and that as the second-place party, the NDP would be given a chance to form a government by the lieutenant-governor.

Clark was speaking for the first time since Monday's announcement by the B.C. New Democratic Party (NDP) and Greens that they have agreed to form a coalition and will seek to form a minority NDP government.

Clark said the Liberals will follow constitutional advice and historical precedence, and test the confidence of her minority government inside the legislature.

The Liberals won 43 seats in a recent election, the NDP won 41 and the Greens won three.

The agreement also calls for restoring funding to education, health care and a referendum on a proportional representation voting system that will occur in October 2018, concurrent with the civic election.

The Warriors executed a great strategy throughout the game of forcing the Cavaliers to guard each player on the court. And it worked splendidly for the two-time reigning MVP and Kevin Durant in their first Finals together.

Ian Anderson said in a statement Wednesday that the expansion has been reviewed, analyzed, discussed and considered thoroughly over many years, and now has approvals from the National Energy Board, the Government of Canada and a B.C. environmental certificate.

"The NDP is now trying to identify a Liberal MLA willing to stand for the job, which will ensure they and the Greens have a clear majority that does not rely on a speaker's tie-breaking vote", said Prest.

With no party holding a clear balance of power, the question becomes who the Green Party will throw its support behind.

"[The legislature] can be an adversarial place... we have the opportunity now to fix that", said Horgan.

Popham, echoing her caucaus colleague Rob Fleming, said she fully supports the agreement.

Under the informal conventions of Canadian parliamentary democracy, Clark remains premier until she has lost the confidence of the legislature.

"We share a great deal with the Green caucus", he said.

"We want to hear from BC Hydro what it signed, how binding are these agreement and what are the consequences of proceeding", said Horgan.

The agreement establishes the basis under which the B.C. Green Partywill provide confidence to an NDP government.

The BC Greens and BC NDP have taken the next step in their pursuit of power in the B.C. Legislature.

Adam Olsen, a Green member who was elected in Saanich North and the Islands, said his party made compromises in its negotiations with the NDP but the agreement addresses democratic-reform issues critical to the party's agenda. "But we have a six-week and a three-month timeframe for preliminary response and final response".

In the same release, Horgan said that a B.C. NDP government will "make life more affordable, fix the services people count on, and build a sustainable economy that works for people".

The Greens and NDP have supported a system of proportional representation that accounts for the number of seats each party gets in the legislature based on their percentage of the popular vote.
