Horgan holds hope he will be BC premier

In a news conference, Clark confirmed that British Columbia Lt. -Gov.

If Clark can't maintain the confidence of the legislature, Guichon could invite the opposition parties to attempt to form their own government-or she could dissolve the legislature and drop the writ on a new election.

Its leader, Andrew Weaver, a Cambridge-trained climate scientist who left an accomplished academic career to become a politician, had refused before the election to say which party he would support in a potential minority government.

"They really seemed to understand the platform issues and why they're important and just the fact that they're going to grow up and inherit what we've got here in B.C.", she said.

"This campaign has always been not about me, but about us, on the Us Bus", Horgan said.

Leader Andrew Weaver's comments late in the campaign made it clear that he would be happier working with the Liberals' Christy Clark than the NDP's John Horgan.

She said voters sent the message they want a bigger economy, not a bigger government, while keeping middle class taxes low.

With recounts expected in some ridings and absentee ballots not counted for two weeks, there is still a possibility that the final outcome could change.

The province's lieutenant-governor asked BC Liberal Leader Christy Clark to continue as premier with a minority of 43 seats Wednesday.

Weaver said it's too early for him to say whether he would back the Liberals or New Democrats but he was willing to compromise and was scheduled to meet with both Clark and Horgan on Wednesday afternoon.




The party lost in the northern riding of Skeena, which the Liberals haven't picked up since 2001, but picked up seats across Metro Vancouver, knocking off four cabinet ministers, including Attorney General Suzanne Anton, TransLink Minister Peter Fassbender, and Naomi Yamamoto in North Vancouver-Lonsdale - a riding that hasn't gone orange since 1991, when the vote was split on the right.

The Liberals were trying to win a fifth successive majority government after holding power for 16 years. The NDP had only a marginal 0.14 per cent bump in popular support to 39.85 per cent.

Horgan said Tuesday that a majority of British Columbians voted for a new government and that needs to be considered.

(TSX:WTE), since Clark has proposed a hefty levy on US coal shipments through the port in response to the softwood lumber dispute.

They previously brought forward legislation banning union and corporate political campaign donations on seven occasions, only to see it squashed by the Liberal majority.

Horgan said the NDP and the Green Pary share many concerns and that his focus is on issues such as childcare, healthcare, education and housing.

And presuming the seat count remains unchanged, collaboration between the NDP and the Greens would give them 44 seats.

"Elections don't go wrong; elections go as they go".

"All the different scenarios play out in a hung parliament", he said, using a term to describe a situation where no single party or group of parties controls the majority of legislative or parliamentary seats.
