British Columbia's election results show a divided province with Liberal victories in many rural ridings and the New Democrats in urban areas, but Premier John Horgan says his government will be influenced by good ideas, not politics.

Horgan says now that he has a majority government he plans to spend more time outside of the legislature meeting people across the province.

BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson didn't concede defeat on Saturday night.

But Sunday afternoon, he tweeted that he had spoken to Horgan and congratulated him on his election win, saying that the people of BC have spoken.

With about 600,000 mail-in and absentee ballots still to be counted, the results election night gave the NDP 53 seats, the Liberals 27, the Greens three, and four ridings were undecided.

In his post election news conference on Sunday, Horgan says his government will be open to ideas from across B.C. and party lines.

He says he doesn't care where an idea comes from.

If it makes sense, the government will implement it no matter the geographical area or political perspective.
