British Columbia's outgoing premier says he has offered a helping hand in resolving a gridlock over health care between provincial and territorial leaders and the federal government.
John Horgan, who will pass the premiership to NDP Leader David Eby in an inauguration ceremony Friday, emphasized he's not looking for a job, but says he sent a group text message to his counterparts saying he'd be happy to help any way he can and has indicated the same to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Horgan says he knows the file, he's passionate about it and believes he has the confidence of leaders across the political spectrum to help them solve it.
However, he noted his relationship isn't as strong with federal Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, whom he accused of ``ghosting'' provincial leaders who gathered in Victoria in July hoping to see a commitment of larger federal health transfers.
