The BC Liberal government has survived a confidence vote in the Legislature.
MLA's have voted 45-38 in support of the new BC budget.
Independent MLA's John Slater and Vicki Huntington voted with the Liberals, while former Liberal John van Dongen and former New Democrat Bob Simpson voted with the NDP.
If this vote had gone the other way, it could have triggered the dissolution of government and an early provincial election.
