Horgan told his caucus Tuesday the split votes between the BC Liberals and the NDP during the election is a message to all parties to work together.

Coming out of the Liberal huddle, Penticton MLA Dan Ashton wouldn't speculate on how the NDP-Green agreement would affect governance of the province.

Ms Clark said she is unlikely to survive a confidence vote, but will not resign pre-emptively.

"You don't decide the government on the steps of a hotel, you decide it in the legislature", said Ashton, adding that when the legislature is recalled they will see how the NDP and Green plan to proceed.
If this is the case, the Greens and the NDP will likely go on to govern B.C. with a combined total of 44 seats - the slimmest possible majority.
