VANCOUVER – B.C. New Democrats have voted to keep John Horgan as their leader.

A mandatory leadership review took place at the party’s convention in Vancouver today.

Ninety-five per cent of the ballots cast supported Horgan’s continued leadership.

The vote of confidence means he will officially lead the B.C. New Democrats into the next provincial election, scheduled for 2017.

Horgan told the crowd that his party will set out a bold, ambitious agenda that will attract more voters than ever before.

Horgan took over the reigns of the provincial NDP from Adrian Dix in 2014.
