Hidden agenda for Horgan election call?

Fundraising events earlier in the year a sign something was in the works

John Horgan stated that he decided on calling a provincial election a week before he announced the election date to the residents of B.C.

That is not true. Why? I have been following the B.C. NDP event website, and starting in January, 2020, the B.C. NDP had campaign fundraising events in all electoral ridings including ridings that had B.C. Liberal and B.C. Green MLAs.

When the COVID-19 arrived on the scene, Horgan put a stop to these events. Later on, once into the COVID-19, he continued on with these NDP fundraising events, except this time by virtual format.

I wondered why with one more year in his government mandate, why do all of these fundraising events when he would have to do it all again next year, when the province would once again have a provincial election.

I concluded, he is going to call the election in 2020.

Horgan also stated the reason for him calling the election is that the residents of B.C. must decide who they want to manage the province in the long term and not just the short term.

Again that is not true. Why? Horgan does not want to present next year’s budget with only a year left in his mandate.

He has a hidden agenda in the next budget, which is going to cost the taxpayers once again, more money to be paid in taxes.

This hidden agenda would make him lose the election in October 2021.

If he was to win the Oct. 24, 2020 election, then he would be safe with his unlikable hidden agenda budget.

At the time of the election call the B.C. Liberals had 41 seats, the B.C. NDP had 41 seats, the B.C. Greens had two seats, and the Independents had two seats.

We will all have to watch what happens to the two B.C. Green Party MLA seats, and the two Independent MLA seats.

The results of those four seats will determine who becomes the new government of B.C.

The only reason this provincial election was called by John Horgan was to maintain his security of retaining government and his paycheque.
