BC Greens gain two more seats in 2017 provincial election

Now the incumbent B.C. Liberals hold 43 seats, the NDP have 41 and B.C. Greens have three seats.

"They really seemed to understand the platform issues and why they're important and just the fact that they're going to grow up and inherit what we've got here in B.C.", she said.

The political commentariate is ruminating over the dozens of "what if?" scenarios following Tuesday's provincial election, which resulted in a hung legislature.

New Democrats made inroads in key Metro Vancouver suburbs where they needed to capture Liberal seats to come close to forming government.

He said however the government ends up looking, the NDP's increased seat count in the legislature strengthens the party. They want us to work across party lines.

Despite the fact we still don't know who the Premier is along with the possibility of a minority government, Clark had plenty of positive things to say about the vote.

Across the North Shore's four ridings, Liberal support dropped by 7.46 per cent, while the Green vote share was up 13.26 per cent from the last election.

"If it's true that British Columbians voted for a change, that must mean - if you're Andrew Weaver - ousting Christy Clark from government", said UBC's Richard Johnston.

Weaver, speaking to supporters Tuesday night, said the Greens could work with either party but he did not indicate a preference.

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

Clark's campaign strategy marked a return to the Liberals' winning approach in 2013, when she promoted her party as the only one that could create and protect jobs while portraying the NDP as disastrous managers of the economy. Several ridings were decided by fewer than 300 votes, including Courtenay-Comox, where the NDP won by a mere nine votes.

The ever-upbeat Clark tried to spin the May 9 election results in a positive light, despite the fact her party ended up the biggest loser, with a number of Liberal cabinet ministers losing their seats to the NDP. For the first time in provincial history, the Greens expanded their seat count from one to three, which gives the third party the balance of power. "We'll get decisions but they will take longer, they will often be more complicated because there will be layered issues in those compromises". But Furstenau still comfortably won the riding by 1,500 votes over her nearest challenger from the NDP.

NDP Leader John Horgan held a news conference shortly after, where he revealed his intention to take the reins if the final count goes in his party's favour.

Asked about reports of bad blood between the two men, Weaver said that he and Horgan are both "passionate" people.

Depending on the outcome, British Columbians may be in for a new NDP government that would aim to block the Kinder Morgan pipeline twinning, and potentially unravel BC Liberal megaprojects like the Site C dam and Massey Bridge, while raising taxes on the wealthy and providing new subsidies for child care and to aid renters. "And I think that is what they deserve", said Horgan.
