The throne speech contains promises to reform campaign financing, build partnerships with Indigenous Peoples and make living in B.C. more affordable.
The speech was delivered by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon…
The NDP is promising to increase support to the Residential Tenancy Branch “to make sure tenants and landlords are treated fairly”.
The speech from the throne promises to reform B.C. campaign finance laws.
The government will also set the terms for a referendum on proportional representation to take place no later than November of next year.
B.C. Liberal MLA Darryl Plecas was elected as the new Speaker of the B.C.Legislature and shortly after, he was expelled from the Liberal caucus.
He was the only MLA to put his name forward for the position and it means the NDP did not have to give up a seat for the position but the Liberals lost one.
