BC NDP cruise to a majority, but the real work lies ahead

As widely predicted, British Columbia’s NDP government has renewed its mandate with a thumping majority, making John Horgan the province’s first sitting New Democratic premier to win re-election.

At the time of writing, the BC NDP has won or is leading in 55 of the province’s 87 seats. Although there are still around half a million mailed in ballots to count before the results are finalized, polling suggests that the votes yet to be counted are likely to favour the New Democrats, meaning their majority could grow even more over the coming weeks.
