As expected, 41 NDP MLAs and three B.C. Green MLAs have voted nonconfidence in the throne speech from the B.C. Liberal government.
Immediately after the vote as legislature speaker Steve Thomson said "this house stands adjourned until further notice," New Democrats and B.C. Greens erupted with applause.
Now, British Columbians must wait to find out if Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon will ask NDP Leader John Horgan to form a government supported by the B.C. Greens.
The vote came after a lengthy speech by Premier Christy Clark, in which she claimed to have learned lessons from the May 9 provincial election.
Clark also accused the New Democrats of "grasping for power" and claimed that they were "vowing to twist the rules of our legislature".
She also took potshots at B.C. Green Leader Andrew Weaver, claiming that he wouldn't even hear an offer from the B.C. Liberals.
