B.C. Liberals hang on to win minority government

The B.C. Liberals have retained their hold on power — but the final result could change in the weeks to come.

As of midnight PT Wednesday, Christy Clark and her Liberals had won a minority government, elected in 43 of B.C.’s 87 ridings, compared to 41 for the NDP and three for the Green Party. It takes 44 seats to form a majority in B.C.

It is B.C.’s first minority government result since 1952.

But several ridings will have recounts — including Courtenay-Comox, where the NDP lead by just nine votes — and absentee ballots have not been counted.

The Liberals the NDP and the Greens, that was some choice.
