British Columbia Greens, NDP to make announcement on province's govt

But pipeline opponents - now nearly the government - say that if the pipeline can't be stopped in the courts, it should be stalled into extinction with a variety of tactics.

"We're looking to show to British Columbians that minority governments can work", Weaver told reporters on Monday.

In a joint announcement today outside the Parliament Buildings, they announced a tentative agreement under which the Greens would support an NDP-led government on issues pertaining to the budget and supply. The Greens will hold no cabinet positions, but will support the NDP through a four-year confidence and supply agreement.

Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private sector, representing more than 310,000 workers.

"As the incumbent government, and the party with the most seats in the legislature, we have a responsibility to carefully consider our next steps", Clark said.

With a widely-distributed support base, the Greens have suffered the most under first-past-the-post, receiving only 3.4 per cent of the seats in B.C.'s legislature in the last election despite winning 16.8 per cent of the popular vote.

For the first time in Canadian history, the results of the election left the Green party holding the balance of power.

Both parties made clear their opposition to the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project during the election run, and the NDP's Horgan has said he's open to shutting down the controversial Site C hydroelectric dam.

Weaver said that he had enjoyed good negotiations with both the BC Liberals and the NDP, and found several commonalities with both parties.

Into that cauldron, Premier Rachel Notley's Alberta NDP government is trying to inject some certainty, both through back-channel talks and public declarations.

"We can have a legislature where all MLAs can put forward good ideas that help people, and come together to support them", he said.

Premier Christy Clark said the Liberals have made every effort to reach a governing agreement with the Greens, while standing firm on their core beliefs.

And Weaver promises to pull the trigger Wednesday, announcing who the Greens have an agreement with - making Horgan or Clark the premier.

They still think there's a chance the new B.C. government will choose to deal with more pressing campaign promises, such as political financing and electoral reform, rather than provoking a sustained battle that would end with certain defeat in the Supreme Court. Judith Guichon said Clark would have the opportunity to recall the legislature and introduce a throne speech.

For the federal NDP and Green Party, however, the news was met with much enthusiasm.

That would force either the NDP or Greens to offer up a speaker.
