VICTORIA — Provincial politicians head back to their ridings for the Christmas break as the fall session of the legislature wraps today in Victoria.

New Democratic Party Premier John Horgan holds a news conference this afternoon to mark the conclusion of his party's first full session as government in 16 years.

The party says it has accomplished several important goals since taking office in July, including hiking monthly income assistance, disability rates and the minimum wage, as well as removing tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges.

The next session of the legislature will begin with a throne speech and budget in the new year.
