WATCH: B.C. Legislature back in session

Global BC Legislative Bureau Chief Keith Baldrey talks about what to expect from the Legislature going back in session today.

Provincial politicians are back in Victoria today for a six-week fall sitting of the Legislature.

There will be lots of issues to debate, including the youth mental health crisis that unraveled last week with the death of a teen at a hotel in Abbotsford while under the government’s care.

There have already been calls from the Opposition for Minister of Children and Family Development Stephanie Cadieux to resign.

Another subject for debate will be the province’s plans for the LNG industry.

The Liberals have said 100,000 jobs will be created if certain projects go ahead, but the NDP has been critical of those numbers.

B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong recently admitted that B.C.’s job growth is under-performing, but said the province is heading towards another surplus budget and is poised to lead the country in economic growth through 2016.
