John Horgan is the new premier of BC.
In his presentation in front of the Lieutenant Governnor’s House, Horgan addressed the top issues that required immediate attention. These included the fentanyl crisis, softwood and education.
The Legislature will select a speaker when the House reconvenes.
It’s time to “get back to work,” he said.

At around 7:10, before the official announcement, John Horgan tweeted, “Today British Columbians finally have the change they voted for. Thank you to everyone who got us here. The hard work starts now.”
