B.C. Premier John Horgan made a personal statement to the media Thursday morning.
He told an impromptu news conference that he felt a lump in his neck a few months ago and underwent tests.
That led to the discovery of a growth in his throat. He said he will undergo surgery Friday morning to determine if it is cancerous.
Horgan said he will not be stepping away, but has appointed Mike Farnworth as the deputy premier in the event he is needed to assist with the premier’s duties.
“Minister Farnworth is respected on all sides, for his incredible public service since being elected to the legislature 30 years ago,” Horgan said.
