For the  week of Sept. 20, 2020:

Will he or won’t he? 

Premier John Horgan could be days away from asking Lt. Gov. Janet Austin to dissolve the Legislature and call a snap election. A year early and during the worsening coronavirus pandemic.

The evidence? A flurry of cabinet ministers resigning from the next campaign simultaneous with a flurry of nomination hopefuls. A $1.5 billion bailout plan followed by a public-paid partisan ad campaign (Horgan promised he would ban partisan government ads). Restrictions on media access to government officials and public records.

There are also calls for Horgan to back-off and stick to governing from Sonia Furstenau, the new leader of the BC Greens, and Norman Spector, the veteran political advisor who brokered the Green/NDP confidence and supply agreement.

On this edition, hear highlights of the week that was. 

Plus commentary and headlines from the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
