B.C. Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon delivered the Speech from the Throne yesterday to share Premier Horgan’s NDP government’s plans for the upcoming year.

As expected, the NDP minority government is focusing on the affordability of housing and child care as their key priorities, committing to ‘historic spending’ in both areas.

Michael Goehring, Matt MacInnis and Nicole Paul from NATIONAL’s Vancouver office share their analysis of what was – and of what wasn’t – included in yesterday’s Speech from the Throne.
