2 JOHN HORGAN
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.
