British Columbians are likely headed to the polls in a few weeks.

Premier John Horgan is expected to call a provincial election later this morning.

Horgan is slated to hold a press conference Monday at 11 a.m. following a meeting with Lieutenant Governor Janet Austin where he will request the Legislature be dissolved and an election called.

“Premier John Horgan will address how British Columbians deserve a say in our economic recovery and will decide the future of our province,” the BC NDP said in a news release.

Voting day will likely be October 24.
