“The New Democratic Party has won three elections in 80 years so we have not got the best record.”
While the next provincial election is about a year and a half away the leader of the provincial NDP is already characterizing it as a must win.
John Horgan was asked if his party can afford another election loss.
“I don’t believe we can. That increases pressure on me to perform. It increases pressure on me to provide the best stable of candidates I possibly can that reflect the diversity and the dynamism of British Columbia. That is my goal over the next twelve months is to make sure I am recruiting people to my banner to make B.C. better and that is what I am going to do.”
Horgan says Christy Clark is a great campaigner but lousy at governing.
The NDP have not led a government since Gordon Campbell ended a decade of rule defeated then NDP Premier Ujjal Dosanjh in 2001 beginning 14 years and counting of BC Liberal governments.
