PRE­MIER OF B.C. PRE­VI­OUSLY # 1, 2017˜ Many pre­dicted that B.C.’S first mi­nor­ity govern­ment in 65 years wouldn’t last more than a few months. The fact that it’s well into year two now—with no end in sight—is a tes­ta­ment to the lead­er­ship skills of John Hor­gan, who has kept his coali­tion to­gether while de­liv­er­ing much of the NDP plat­form. That said, the bal­anc­ing act only gets trick­ier from here on in. As the for­mer Lib­eral regime fades in mem­ory, pub­lic anger over the hous­ing cri­sis is some­thing the NDP will now be forced to wear—as will any eco­nomic fall­out from try­ing to ap­pease its Green part­ners on Trans Moun­tain and other en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues.
