theBreaker understands that the decision on who will govern British Columbia (and how) after the nail-biting May 9 election result is coming this afternoon. A source says the announcement about the B.C. Greens and… another party… is coming as early as 2 p.m.
Andrew Weaver led his B.C. Greens to three seats and the balance of power. Incumbent Premier Christy Clark’s BC Liberals fell from 49 to 43 seats — one shy of a majority in the next 87-seat Legislature — while the NDP under John Horgan sits at 41.
UPDATE: Weaver and Horgan have a deal and will announce the terms at 2 p.m. at the golden gates, outside the Legislature. It appears the BC Liberal government since 2001 is almost over.
Stay tuned for developments…
