Last night’s election in BC was the closest and most dramatic in my lifetime. Tentative results show the BC Liberals with 43 seats, BC NDP with 41 and the BC Greens with 3 seats, making Dr. Andrew Weaver and the Green Party the most powerful people in BC right now holding the balance of power.
Watch as I show you where each party did well and how the interior of the province may have saved us from an NDP government.
This rural-urban divide is on the rise across the world as we saw with Brexit, the US election, and now in BC.
I'll also show you why the BC Liberals could still form a majority government based on a recount and absentee ballots from the riding of Courtney-Comox, where they lost by only nine votes.
And while for some this election was a referendum on Christy Clark, she proved herself once again to be one of the best campaigners out there.
But it remains to be seen if she’ll be able to govern effectively in this scenario or if we’ll be heading back to the polls sooner rather than later.
