John Horgan’s pandemic election gamble appears to have paid off, as the B.C. NDP has come away from Saturday’s provincial election with a majority government. But there are still a half-million or so advance and by-mail votes to be counted, so the numbers will change in the coming weeks. Most analysts agree, however, that those votes won’t substantially change the picture from the Oct. 24 election, which saw the NDP win 55 seats, an increase of 14, all at the expense of the B.C. Liberals, who now hold just 29 seats, the fewest seats they’ve held in the B.C. Legislature since the 1990s. The Green party won three seats, the same total as they held coming into the election.
