John Horgan to Be Sworn in as Premier Today
Prince George, B.C. – BC NDP Leader John Horgan will officially be sworn in as the province’s 36th premier at 2 p.m. at Government House in Victoria this afternoon.
It will officially end 16 consecutive years of BC Liberal rule and be the fourth time in B.C.’s history its had a New Democrat as premier.
Previous NDP governments ran from 1972-1975, 1991-1996 and from 1996 to 2001.
Of course the big difference this time is an alliance with the BC Greens has catapulted them back into office.
The NDP will also swear in its new cabinet today. No word yet on how large that cabinet will be.
