I think you’re correct, they’ll be looking at lubricants to shove this down our throats when the exact timing arrives.

Good to see the BC premier heard the voters on this unnecessary museum, far more important things happening to BC residents to spend billion + taxpayers dollars on.

Maybe he saw the polling numbers and his downfall in popularity and decided this wasn't the hill to die on.
I just hope the fence sitters realize how bad Horgan the Horrible has shown himself to be.
Really need to get rid of the NDP.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

Why? Because Horgan NDP are pragmatic and read the tea leaves? Perhaps conservative voters would have preferred that the NDP was more bombastic and shoved the museum down the taxpayer's throats? You know - like the HST after BC Liberals campaigning that they wouldn't do so?

Regardless of how you feel about Horgan, admitting and correcting this mistake is a great example of good governance.

You don't see too many politicians admit mistakes and reverse a decision.

The real shame is this was politicized in the first place.

We need the museum to be replaced at some point, timing was of course horrible, but I hope this does get done in the future.

The timing was horrible? Really?
How about the price tag, a BILLION dollars. Or is that simply chump change to some of you?

And a shame it was politicized? Eye roll.

It was a good decision. I'm glad he changed his mind and was straight up with his reasoning with no excuses. Refreshing.
