BC election results so far “tremendously encouraging” for working people and a future for all: BCFED

October 26, 2020 | News Release

(Unceded Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh and Musqueam territories — Vancouver, BC) Election-night returns show a strong likelihood of a clear majority mandate for Premier John Horgan and the BC NDP — which would be great news for working people, BCFED President Laird Cronk said this morning.
“We still don’t have the final result, but all the signs are tremendously encouraging. If these results hold, we can look forward to a stable majority government with a solid record of achievement for working people,” Cronk said.
Cronk offered his congratulations to John Horgan and the BC NDP on a strong, well-run campaign and a compelling platform. “British Columbians had a very clear choice in this election: go back to an economy that was leaving too many people behind, or build a future for all. And all indications show they’ve chosen to move forward toward a better, fairer province.”
Cronk recognized the results aren’t final, citing the need to respect the hundreds of thousands of mail-in votes that have yet to be tallied.
“We won’t know the final outcome for another few weeks. But however the composition of the legislature and government ends up looking, we look forward to continuing the hard work of making the progress working people need — especially as we move through this pandemic,” he said.
