Now this is a special swearing in ceremony. BC NDP leader John Horgan ushers in newly elected MLA’s Melanie Mark and Jodie Wickens.
Ms Mark, the first aboriginal woman elected to the legislature in BC, was drummed into office in a colourful entry of historical significance.
„This is such a surreal moment for me,“ she said. „It’s hard to believe it’s less than a year ago I decided to run. Here we are making history. It’s really a testament of where British Columbia wants to go, and that’s really about reconciliation.“
