Horgan and Weaver deliver agreement to lieutenant-governor Wednesday morning


B.C. Green Party Leader Andrew Weaver and B.C. NDP Leader John Horgan delivered their agreement to Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon Wednesday morning.

The two leaders went to Government House at 10 a.m. with the Confidence and Supply Agreement which was signed by the 44 members of the two parties’ caucuses. The agreement signals their intention to form a government.

However, Premier Christy Clark will still have the first chance to form the government. She said Tuesday she will bring back the legislature in early June and there will be a confidence vote in the House.

“Today was about giving the lieutenant-governor an option, an option to form a government with 44 MLAs,” Weaver said.

The Confidence and Supply Agreement, which was signed on Tuesday, listed several initiatives, including proportional representation and stopping the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

Andrew Weaver and John Horgan sign the Green-NDP agreement on May 30.
