Former Premier John Horgan will make his last speech in the BC Legislature today (set for 1 pm), Thursday February 9, 2023.
He will stay on as MLA for Langford-Juan de Fuca for a short while longer, then resign his seat “before the end of the fiscal year” (which comes up March 31, 2023).
You can watch that on the BC Legislature’s website video stream. Afterward he will take media questions. That will be covered live on some TV stations.
