May 9, 2017 – BC Liberals lose election. Confirming what many predicted would be a tight race; John Horgan leads the NDP to a victory of sorts with a minority government. Many are already speculating on the need for Horgan to form a coalition with the Green Party if he intends to hang onto power.
THAT COULD BE the headline you see on the morning after May 9 and this is how I think Christy Clark’s government took that beating it wasn’t expecting.
As Joe Biden recently noted, “the public has moved beyond their government”, and it is something many governments and the BC Liberals in particular have failed to understand or accept.
