VICTORIA — B.C.’s Liberal government delivered what is likely its last gasp in power Thursday, with a throne speech that borrowed heavily on ideas from opponents and pledged “humility” to voters.
But it won’t be enough to stave off the party’s defeat next week in the legislature, after the NDP and Greens reconfirmed their commitment to topple the Liberals on a confidence vote in the legislature.
The speech from Premier Christy Clark’s government was packed with more than two dozen policy reversals and new policies not contained in her party’s May election platform. It included major items the Liberals had campaigned against, such as a referendum on electoral reform and scrapping bridge tolls in Metro Vancouver
