B.C. New Democrats have voted to keep Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan as their leader.

A mandatory leadership review took place at the party’s convention in Vancouver on Saturday.

Ninety-five per cent of the ballots cast supported Horgan’s continued leadership.

The vote of confidence means he will officially lead the B.C. New Democrats into the next provincial election, scheduled for 2017.

Horgan told the crowd that his party will set out a bold, ambitious agenda that will attract more voters than ever before.

“Our team of candidates will be the best, and most diverse, we’ve ever put forward,” he said.

Horgan took over the reigns of the provincial NDP from Adrian Dix in 2014.
