The BC Election is over and the Lieutenant Governor has asked Premier Clark to continue to govern. In just under two weeks we’ll have the recount and final vote tallies in a couple of ridings the NDP won in close races that could put the BC Liberals back into majority territory if there’s a change.
Ideally, I wanted to take a break from talking about the election but there’s been far too much speculation out there in the press --- partly from the media party, partly from progressives dying to chime in and pressure the Greens and NDP into a coalition, and partly from far too pessimistic BC Liberal and conservative voters.
To address this, I made a short list of what’s next for the BC Liberals, for this province, and why I’m more optimistic than most about the concessions, if any, the Liberals will make to the Green Party.
Watch as I show you four key things Premier Clark and the BC Liberals have to do to stay in power.
Whether any of this will matter, mostly comes down to whether the Liberals get that 44th seat and a majority or if someone from the NDP or Greens decides to cross the floor.
But if things hold the way they are, these four things are how the BC Liberals can hold onto power and be back ready to win a majority next time to continue to keep the socialist hordes behind the gates.
