Friday’s Forum: Inside BC Politics

    Local News    June 13, 2018

No-one was prepared for the closest election outcome in British Columbia history, on May 9, 2017. The BC Liberals had emerged with just two seats more than the BC NDP, leaving the decision—as to who would form the government—to three Green Party MLAs.

What led to Christy Clark’s downfall, to the NDP forming government and the Green Party holding the balance of power?

Richard Zussman is co-author of the new national best-seller A Matter of Confidence, which tells the inside story of the political battle for BC.

He joins the Salt Spring Forum on Friday, June 15th at 7:30 PM at ArtSpring for a candid conversation about exactly what happened, why, and what the future of BC politics holds.

Richard Zussman was the Provincial Affairs reporter for CBC BC until he was fired for writing A Matter of Confidence. He now works for Global BC.

Are you interested in how politics really works? Do you want to hear the inside story about how very hard Christy Clark fought to keep her job? And how John Horgan and Andrew Weaver forged an unexpected friendship out of their mutual love for rugby? Please join Richard Zussman in discussion—a reporter with a unique “fly on the wall” perspective on the closest BC election of all.

Tickets are available at ArtSpring (250-537-2102 or online) and Salt Spring Books. $15 – 2018 Forum Members; $20 – General Public. (Students and low-income residents contact forum@saltspringforum.com)
