Vancouver-The pact announced today that paves the way for a progressive majority government and a partnership between the BC NDP and the BC Greens creates an historic opportunity for lasting and profound change in our province, says BC Federation of Labour President Irene Lanzinger.

“All British Columbians who voted for change in the May 9 election should be heartened that our two left of centre parties were able to reach an agreement that has so much potential to make lives better for all British Columbians,” says BCFED President Irene Lanzinger.

Now Lanzinger says the spotlight shifts to BC Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon who will decide the next step. “Respectfully, we would encourage the Queen’s Representative in BC to be guided in her decisions by two things: The agreement reached today by the BC NDP and the Greens for a majority government, and the 60% of British Columbians who voted for change in the recent election,” says Lanzinger.
