On Thursday night, Premier John Horgan and Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson took part in a very heated debate discussing the electoral reform.

At this point, most British Columbians have received a ballot for the Fall 2018 referendum. In several weeks, the province will tally the votes and decide whether BC keeps its current First Past the Post (FPTP) voting system, or transitions to a form of proportional representation (PR).

Among the heated debate between the two leaders, the strongest point of the night was made by the Premier, who told his opponent that “if you were woke, you’d know that Pro Rep is lit.”

Yes, he really said that.

And… he’s standing by it. On Friday morning, Horgan took to Twitter to declare: “I stand by my statement” and shared the hashtag #prorepislit.

Here are some of the best reactions the internet had after hearing Horgan go full dad-mode.
