For the week of Nov. 20, 2022:
A rare, seamless transfer of power in British Columbia.
Premiers here tend to resign in scandal or suffer defeat in an election. Not this time, as number 36 John Horgan ceded power to number 37 David Eby during a Nov. 18 ceremony at the Musqueam Indian Band’s community centre.
The guest on thePodcast this week is George Orr, whose up close and personal documentary, “My Name is David Eby,” took viewers behind the scenes of Eby’s 2013 upset win over then-Premier Christy Clark.
“I think like the guy I met was a lovely guy who actually cares, got into politics for all the right reasons,” Orr said. “Whether he gets tarnished or not, we’ll find out first time something happens and he has to make a hard decision.”
Plus a commentary on Justin Trudeau’s awkward encounter with Communist China dictator Xi Jinping and headlines from the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
