After negotiations with both the Liberals and the NDP, the Greens chose to side with John Horgan's NDP.
That would be the united opposition's first opportunity to defeat the government and propose an NDP government supported by the Greens.
NDP leader John Horgan announced Monday they reached a support agreement with the three-member B.C. Green party.
According to Clark, whose party won 43 seats or one short of the required majority of 44 in the last election, she will convene the legislative assembly and test its confidence.
"If we were asked today to form the government, we have no information to base our decisions on", Horgan said, after signing the deal with Weaver. "We're going to implement that, and we're hopefully going to have the support of the Green Party at that time", said Horgan.
Clark will be speaking at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday to the NDP-Green agreement aimed at replacing her government.
British Columbia's NDP leader highlighted affordable housing and health care Tuesday as key elements in a minority government deal with the Green party.
"I'm hopeful that if Ms. Clark does want to through with that precedent, that she does so in a timely manner", said Horgan.

"The Premier has indicated that we have every intention of forming government", says Tegart.
Both the NDP and Greens opposed the project in the election campaign, but it is a federally governed project.
"I value the positive working relationship that Premier Clark and I maintained in previous sessions, where we were able to work together to advance important public policy issues".

The parties have been meeting in recent weeks to negotiate potential alliances. Yesterday, the Greens and NDP announced they planned of collaborating to form a majority in the BC Legislature.
