VICTORIA B.C. – Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, issued the following statement in response to the final vote counts for the 2017 B.C. provincial election, which has resulted in a legislature where no one party has won a majority of the seats.
“The B.C. Green caucus is committed to ensuring that British Columbians will have a stable minority government,” said Weaver.
“With this historic result, British Columbia can finally put the ineffective two-party system behind us. It has led to a divisive legislature that primarily benefits special interests. The results of the 2017 election are an incredible opportunity for B.C.’s political leaders to put partisan differences aside and work for the common good. I look forward to working with both other parties so that we can finally get big money out of politics, move towards electoral reform and implement good public policy on a wide range of issues that puts people first.”
