BC election results are 'beginning of something different,' Clark says

By the time The Tyee and other media pointed out that Clark's Liberals were far more suspect in that regard, given big donations they'd taken from USA based timber corporations, Clark had achieved her aim, striking her stance as the little people's courageous warrior against a monstrous bully.

But he was denied by Sullivan, who went on to win the general election against the NDP's Matt Toner. "It was based on going out, knocking on doors, and just talking to as many people as possible", he said. Numerous voters in this area are very displeased with the Clark government and I don't need to expand upon why.

Forty Liberals were elected to the legislature compared with 38 New Democrats, with the NDP gaining ground in the seat-rich Lower Mainland where it had focused its campaign. Not a change in MLA's.

With rental vacancy rates at less than one per cent in some parts of the Okanagan, many are struggling to find housing, let alone afford it. It will strengthen the Liberals.

Which is where Andrew Weaver comes in.

What had been an early Liberal lead has largely dissolved, with the NDP pulling even and at times taking the lead in the seat tally. He is not seen as a threat to the Liberal status quo as he is in agreement with many of their policies. From inside the Liberals headquarters at the Fairmont Waterfront, in Vancouver, crowds grew over the course of the night as it came down to a photo finish as the province faces a minority government. Nick Hosseinzadeh is her constituency assistant and campaign manager.

Party Leaders, John Horgan, Christy Clark and Andrew Weaver all one their respective ridings. The NDP and Greens have promised an outright ban on corporate and union donations.

Here's the quote on his personal Facebook page on February 15, 2016, He made this appeal for foreign money: "A fundraising plea for the 2017 campaign". Thank you in advance for considering this.

"David ran a hard campaign, he's been campaigning in this riding since 2011, so we were always the underdog and we're proud of where we ended up", Lombardi told the Courier.

Why didn't he back the Metro Vancouver Mayors' Council public transit plan in the 2015 plebiscite?

Liberal candidate Ian Paton lured voters back to Delta South's traditional Liberal roots, beating closest challenger Nicholas Wong, an Independent, by a comfortable margin. Or is he just a BC Liberal in green sheeps clothing?

"I had one guy say on the doorstep, 'I thought you were insane, but I've been impressed with what you've done since you were elected, so I'll be voting for you, '" said Eby, noting he's fought for residents of University of B.C. neighbourhoods upset about a fire protection tax to governance issues related to the University Endowment Lands.

Weaver is not knight in shining armour people imagine him to be.

"My No. 1 goal in this riding is to get that highway fixed and it will be fixed if I'm re-elected", she said.

In the 2013 election, under the riding's former incarnation as Comox, the NDP logged 780 absentee votes, to the BC Liberals' 712.

The leaders spent election day on a final push to get out votes after a sometimes bruising 28-day campaign fought on jobs, the economy and the influence of big donors in provincial politics. "I think there's a lot that we could be doing".

In the previous year of door-knocking, Thornthwaite said she had seen a surge in support for the Green Party, thanks to the Kinder Morgan pipeline issue, but she saw little support for the NDP, although it wasn't reflected in the early returns.

"Whatever happens, happens. I'm looking forward to seeing what the results are", he said.
