Episode details

This year is turning out to be one of great change in British Columbia politics.

In power since 2017, Premier John Horgan announced at the end of June that he would be stepping down. His replacement will be named in December.

On the opposition benches, the B.C. Liberals not only named Kevin Falcon their new leader in February, they might also find a new name, too.

It means when the next election in the province occurs in 2024 (or earlier), the political landscape in B.C. will be very different from what it was in 2020, when Horgan called an early election in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Richard Zussman covers the provincial legislature in Victoria for Global BC and joins me this week on The Writ Podcast to break down all the latest in west coast politics.
