No Word on When Legislature Will Resume

Friday, June 30, 2017 @ 12:59 PM

Prince George, B.C. –  Premier designate, John Horgan hasn’t pinned down a date for when  the Legislature will resume following  yesterday’s non confidence  vote which ousted the  Christy Clark Government.

He  has indicated  he would like to do it “quickly”  but  first must have  himself and cabinet sworn in.  There has  been no word on when that will take place.

Horgan has assured the Lieutenant Governor he can  provide a stable government.

There is,  once again, the issue of who will be speaker of the House.

Steve Thomson  resigned from the post shortly after the non-confidence motion  passed,  meaning the NDP/Green alliance will have to come up with  someone else to fill that chair.  With one from their  own ranks  taking the position, it  will leave both sides  of the House  with equal numbers,  43 Liberals  and  43 NDP/Greens.

The Speaker can  cast  a tie  breaking vote,  and  traditionally has cast that vote in  favour of the  government.
