John Horgan has been named the new leader of the B.C. New Democrat Official Opposition.
“Along with our strong, united team of dedicated MLAs, I’m going to get right to work fighting for B.C. families, B.C. jobs and the B.C. economy,” said Horgan, the MLA for Juan de Fuca since 2005.
“The B.C. Liberals are making life less affordable for hard-working families, and they need a strong voice to stand up to them in the legislature, in their communities, and across the province. That’s what we’re going to do under my leadership.”
Horgan replaces Vancouver-Kingsway MLA Adrian Dix as leader of the Official Opposition.
“I want to thank Adrian for his hard work and dedication as leader of the Opposition for the past three years. Adrian has a relentless commitment to community and works harder than anyone I know. He has been instrumental in building a strong, unified caucus, and will continue to be a tremendous asset for our team going forward,” said Horgan.
