Christy Clark squeaks by David Eby in Vancouver-Point Grey By-Election

931

According to Elections BC, Premier Christy Clark Clark narrowly won with 6,438 votes over the NDP’s David Eby’ 5,975 votes in the Vancouver-Point Grey by-election last night.

Last night the mood in the Clark camp alternated between despair and joy as Clark and Eby traded the lead throughout the night. Eby was ahead for most of the evening until the final screen flash showed the unofficial result.

Even though Eby was narrowly defeated, Eby’s near win clearly bodes well for the NDP in an upcoming provincial election.

How do you feel about last night’s results? Did the best candidate win?

  1. Andrew E says:

    I wouldn’t actually call that squeaking by since the difference is just over 7%, and more than the difference between the top two candidates of most federal ridings in the recent election.

    That being said, Eby came much closer than expected, and if there is a provincial election this fall, it’s a bad sign for the Liberals.
