“While British Columbians struggle with rising costs and damaged services, Christy Clark is playing political games and attempting to cling to power as long as possible,” said John Horgan. “Instead of getting out of the way so our new government can hire teachers and address housing affordability, Christy Clark is hanging on for a few more weeks so she can give her friends pay bumps.”

B.C. Green Leader Andrew Weaver points out that after claiming she wanted to cooperate with other parties, Clark is now focused on her own political interests instead of the interests of British Columbians.

“British Columbians are ready for a new kind of politics where parties work together to make life better for people, we’re ready to do that,” said Weaver. “British Columbians don’t want more delays and distractions from Christy Clark. They want a new government that puts people first, and we’re ready to get to work.”

Since all BC Liberal MLA's refuse to be speaker

The BC NDP, with the support of the three BC Green Party MLA's, must amend the BC Constitution Act to elect someone who is not an elected MLA to be Speaker.
