VICTORIA —  A motion that could topple the B-C Liberals' minority government is expected to be introduced in the legislature today.
     N-D-P house leader Mike Farnworth said Friday that the Opposition will introduce a confidence motion as an amendment to the debate on Thursday's throne speech.
     He says the motion will ask for an immediate vote in the legislature on the speech, but that's not expected to happen because it requires the unanimous consent of the members of the legislature, including the Liberals.
     More likely, Farnworth says he expects the throne speech confidence vote Thursday, which could lead to the defeat of the Liberal government after 16 years in office. (The Canadian Press)
