Christy Clark remains BC premier until all votes counted

Christy Clark remains BC premier until all votes counted

A merger between the NDP and Green Party is also contentious, with 40 per cent of respondents saying this would make them happy, and 43 per cent saying they would be upset.

Weaver could still try to cut a deal with the BC Liberals.

The Liberals lost seats in Metro Vancouver and several cabinet ministers were defeated.

Weaver has proven himself to be a pragmatist who has supported Liberal budgets - something Horgan criticized him over.

Elementary and high school students from all 87 electoral districts in B.C. voted today and handed the NDP a majority government. "We have to wait and see".

The results aren't 100% official, however, as the final count, which includes absentee votes, are tallied between May 22nd and May 24th.

At least one seat - Courtenay-Comox - is so close it is expected to go to a judicial recount.

The outcome marks something of a defeat for the BC NDP, who led the polls early in the campaign and managed a relatively gaffe-free campaign. "And we have also won the most seats".

The Greens won three seats in their traditional stronghold of Vancouver Island, where they were competitive in a number of ridings. They want us to work together.

John Horgan's NDP was in the lead for much of the night.

Premier Rachel Notley hasn't commented on the election results so far.

Weaver heralded the breakthrough of his candidates on Vancouver Island.

"In the days ahead there will be plenty of discussions taking place between all parties", Weaver said.

'Quantico' Renewed for Short Season 3 by ABC
While fans are sure to be relieved by the news of Quantico's renewal, there is a slight catch to the show's third season pickup. Priyanka Chopra recently packed her bags and said farewell to NY after wrapping filming for the finale of Quantico season 2.

Clark acknowledged the race isn't over yet, and said she interpreted the initial results of the vote as a call for bipartisan cooperation.

The Liberal campaign focused on economic growth and job creation.

"Let's hang tight... and get back to the party", he concluded.

Both leaders are in communication with Weaver. The party is not linked to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's federal Liberal Party and is more right-leaning.

A Vancouver city councillor says New Democrats have more in common with Greens than what the latter have with B.C. Liberals.

He said however the government ends up looking, the NDP's increased seat count in the legislature strengthens the party.

As one of the CBC commentators noted, 12 Green MLAs would have been elected if the province had a proportional system last night.

Horgan, meanwhile, talked relentlessly about the affordability struggles faced by normal people: Unaffordable housing.

Weaver's pitch features a disavowal of politics as usual. "We exist because the other parties aren't offering something ..." Instead, he will be joined by Mr. Olsen, a former municipal councillor who worked to derail an LNG project near Victoria and was also an intervenor in the National Energy Board hearings for the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion.

The Liberals held 47 seats in the previous legislature, the NDP had 35, the Greens one and two were held by independents.

Continued rule by the BC Liberals under Clark would largely maintain course, amid some promises to reduce MSP premiums and cap tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges.

Clark called for a retaliatory ban or tax on USA thermal coal exports moving through B.C. ports.
