Canada: British Columbia Liberal MLA facing recall threat after agreeing to serve as province's Speaker

BC Liberal MLA Darryl Plecas is facing recall threats from his own party after agreeing to serve as Speaker, which allows the New Democrats and Greens to have an effective majority (as the Speaker doesn't vote, and the ND and Greens have a 44-42 majority).

The BC Liberals have looked at this as a betrayal.  British Columbia allows for recalls, but not before 18 months after an election.
