In accordance with the confidence and supply agreement (CASA) signed in 2017 with the B.C Greens, Horgan “will not request the dissolution of the legislative power for the duration of the agreement, unless it is followed by a request for confidence.” It is particularly rich for the NDP to think, even remotely, of one of the most important social contracts in B.C.`s history. in the face of the just hazard they properly raised nearly 20 years ago to condemn the B.C. Liberals for dismantling collective agreements. This minority government was and remains stable — in fact, it was used as an example in Canada. The Confidence and Supply Agreement (CASA) ensured stability and, just last Friday, the Greens reaffirmed their commitment to the agreement. But Mr. Horgan went ahead and broke that agreement. This unilateral approach can only be seen as a takeover by the PND. The reasons given for a quick call to elections were stability, an outdated agreement and the need to hear from British-British people.
On this one, perhaps he can only be wary of what he wants. Weaver said CASA`s objectives had been largely met and that the agreement had maintained a minority government for a remarkably long time. And in a blatant disregard for the solemn commitment he gave to all Colombians when signing the confidence and supply agreement, which was the basis of his “responsible government” of his minority. Ironically, in the face of his predecessor`s pitiful efforts to force unnecessary and unwanted elections. While the agreement did not predict a pandemic, it provided British Columbia with a strong and stable government at a critical time and enabled the province to meet the challenges we face. Either you believe in negotiations in good faith and respect for your signed agreements, or you do not. “The president of the New Democrats will not ask for the dissolution of the legislature for the duration of the agreement.” Weaver was the co-architect of the CASA deal that brought the NDP to power in 2017 – a confidence-building and supply deal that ensured the Greens` support for the minority government and the promise of no surprise election. This agreement is “based on the principle of good faith and unsurprisingly.” Citing Horgans CASA`s agreement with Weaver and the Greens, the continuing pandemic and the fact that the province has set fixed election dates, Spector told CTV television on Wednesday that he believed Horgan could damage his political legacy if he declares an early election. “This agreement is effective… Four years or until the next fixed date of the elections, as stipulated in Constitutional Law B.C.” The former Leader of the Greens also said that the changes that have taken place since the agreement – including the pandemic, as well as for the Greens themselves – mean that the Prime Minister would have the right to declare an early election.
I must say that I cannot admire or support a Prime Minister who will not respect his signed agreement. Proclaiming an early election now feeds the entire NDP caucus. The NDP could do better to look for a new leader before breaking a new mandate. And the Prime Minister himself is laying the groundwork to break his deal with the Greens and ask the deputy governor to take on a new term – perhaps as early as next week. “This agreement will continue until the next scheduled election.” “Passing the summer session and seeing two people obstruct and capture most of the government`s ability to take a penny out of the COVID crisis was very worrying for me,” Weaver said.
