It's the first time the province has seen a minority since 1952-1953.
The last time a previous governing party won even close to a majority of the popular vote was 1986, when Bill Vander Zalm's Social Credit party earned 49.32 per cent of voter support, virtually dead even with votes cast for the old Liberal and the NDP.
George Hoberg, professor of environmental and natural resource policy at the University of British Columbia, said the situation could create uncertainties and makes building the project politically hard. There is very little difference between the tallies in three ridings. "I think people are exhausted (and) I think we can show B.C. what we're about".
British Columbia faces a two-week period of uncertainty until the final results are in from its tight election race, when it will become clearer whether the province has a minority or majority government.
He confirmed that he spoke by phone with Horgan and that they agreed the Liberals have failed the province on a range of issues.
It's not easy being Green on British Columbia's political scene - especially for a party facing a hard choice in who it might back in a minority government.
Green Party Leader Andrew called the outcome "historic", noting B.C. had elected North America's first Green caucus above the municipal level.
Canadian province British Columbia hasn't seen a party govern with a minority of the seats in parliament in more than 60 years, Kallanish Energy learns.
"We have a range of issues in common, but my focus is on the people of British Columbia, and if Mr. Weaver and others want to join with me, I'm happy to do that".
Weaver said negotiations on what his party's role would be would begin Wednesday. She was chosen as leader of the Liberals in 2011 and staged a come-from-behind victory in 2013, the Liberals fourth consecutive majority.
Weaver was the first Green elected to B.C.'s legislature four years ago when he surprisingly defeated former Liberal cabinet minister Ida Chong in Oak Bay-Gordon Head.
The Liberals were trying to win a fifth successive majority government after holding power for 16 years.
At 11:30 P.M., the Liberals held 43 seats and the NDP 41.
"Tonight we won the popular vote", she said.
During the press conference, Weaver also denied taking away exclusively NDP votes during the election. As of early this morning, the BC Green Party does.
But his support wasn't just limited to family and close friends, Green Party supporters from across the country were in attendance and lending a hand with the campaign.
The NDP campaign stepped up its attack on the Greens in the final days, warning voters that the NDP is the only party that could end the B.C. Liberal dynasty.
Why? Because it only takes one B.C. Liberal MLA crossing the floor to the NDP or Greens or sitting as an independent or quitting or, god forbid, passing away, and Christy Clark no longer controls the B.C. Legislature.
Peter Fassbender, the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and the Minister Responsible for TransLink, has lost his seat, as has Suzanne Anton, the Minister of Justice.style="text-align: center;"
