CAMPAIGN TRAIL NEWS
7 a.m. – Campaign’s conflicting views
NDP leader John Horgan’s decision to tear up the power-sharing agreement with the B.C. Greens, and break his promise not to go to the polls early, means the NDP may have permanently burnt any co-operative bridge to stay in office if the party falls short — like it did in 2017 — with fewer than the 44 seats required for a bare majority.
WHAT THE LEADERS ARE SAYING:
Sonia Furstenau, Green: “This has not been a time of instability in government. This has been a time of unbelievable co-operation and collaboration for the people of B.C.”
Andrew Wilkinson, Liberal: “We’ll … be promoting the idea of three separate debates involving me, John Horgan and Sonia Furstenau, so that people can get to know our positions in this very strange pandemic election.”
John Horgan, NDP: “We need to keep fighting the pandemic. And we need to make sure that we’re focusing on an economic recovery that works for everyone, not just those at the top.”
