Quit the delay and distraction – call a confidence vote says Horgan

VICTORIA— B.C. New Democrat Leader John Horgan continues to call for Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals to stop the delay and distraction, and allow a confidence vote so a new government can get to work for people.

“While Christy Clark clings to power, people across the province are suffering,” said Horgan.

“Enough is enough. It’s time for Christy Clark to end the delays and distractions, and call a confidence motion so that a new government can get to work on the issues that matter to people.”

Horgan noted that Christy Clark’s delay tactics are hurting families and communities.

“Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals had years to secure a softwood lumber agreement, and they chose to work for their rich friends and donors instead,” said Horgan.

“Now, instead of letting a new government get to work securing a deal, she is threatening an election that British Columbians don’t want.

“British Columbians overwhelmingly voted for a new government that will make life more affordable, deliver the services people need and create good jobs across the province.

“They voted for a new government that will fix the problems that the B.C. Liberals created over the last 16 years.

“People are ready for new leadership that works for everyone not just those at the top. It’s time for Christy Clark to face a confidence motion so that we can put government to work for people.”
