A geeky, Obsessive Pop-Culture Disorder-like thought about British Columbia’s 41st Legislature just occurred to me.
Whomever the assembly elects as its Speaker, and whether the Clark ministry survives or a Horgan ministry takes its place, the razor-thin margin between the Liberals and the NDP-Green grouping means that this 41st Legislature will not be long for this world. It will teeter on the precipice for its entire existence — especially if a New Democratic or Green MLA becomes Speaker. Whichever party forms government will face a high probability of losing the confidence of the assembly on all supply bills. Only one or two MLAs would have to be absent.
