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?
