BC Greens gain two more seats in 2017 provincial election

BC Greens gain two more seats in 2017 provincial election

There are just over 176,100 votes that still need to be tallied across the province, according to preliminary numbers from Elections B.C. The difference between the Liberals and NDP in the popular vote on Tuesday was about 17,800 votes in favour of Clark's party. Down Easterners marked that anniversary as a former director of mine-owner Curragh Inc, 83-year-old BC Liberal Ralph Sultan, swept to his fifth straight victory in the affluent riding of West Vancouver-Capilano.

The BC Greens are now elected in three ridings - leader Andrew Weaver's seat in Oak Bay-Gordon Head plus breakthroughs on Vancouver Island, including Sonia Furstenau in Cowichan Valley.

Horgan said he also looks forward to a final result by May 22, with thousands of votes still to be counted.

At least one seat - Courtenay-Comox - is so close it is expected to go to a judicial recount. "And they reminded us tonight that we are far from ideal", Clark said, adding that she was willing to work with the other parties to govern. "And we have also won the most seats". They'll be counted between May 22nd and May 24th. "Not by huge amounts, but they won significantly", he said.

Quoted by the Association for Mineral Exploration, NDP leader John Horgan pledged his party would address the uncertainty of permitting by working with Geoscience B.C., the B.C. Geological Survey and First Nations "to develop comprehensive mineral land use plans".

"It'll be a week and a bit after the election with six possible outcomes still hanging, two very different platforms and the arrival of the Greens holding the balance of power for the first time in North American history".

"Sixty per cent of those who cast ballots yesterday voted for change", Horgan told reporters in Vancouver. "In the days ahead there will be discussions taking place between all parties, but [tonight] is not the time, [tonight] is the time for Greens to celebrate". Weaver has said his preconditions for Green support of a minority government include an end to corporate and union political donations, and a referendum on changing to a proportional representation voting system.

Clark, 51, told supporters early Wednesday she intends to remain premier despite coming one seat shy of the bare minimum 44-seat threshold needed to form a majority government. With major media outlets like the New York Times exposing B.C.as one of the most wide-open jurisdictions for party financing on the continent, Weaver definitely got some help from high places.
