Two years after winning the election on a campaign that included the complete elimination of medical services plan premiums, the provincial government introduced legislation to make good on its promise.

The NDP government made the announcement Thursday, though most of the details released were already known. British Columbians will no longer pay the MSP premiums as of Jan. 1, 2020.

The MSP program will continue to provide health benefits, and residents of the province are still expected to enrol.
