While West Vancouver-Sea to Sky final elections results are headed for a judicial recount, the other three North Shore ridings are now etched in stone.
In North Vancouver-Lonsdale, NDP incumbent Bowinn Ma was re-elected with 15,878 votes – 59.87 per cent of the total. BC Liberal challenger 'Lyn Anglin finished with 7,274 (27.43 per cent of the vote) and Green candidate Christopher Hakes with 3,369 (12.7 per cent).
In North Vancouver-Seymour, NDP challenger Susie Chant was victorious with 12,891 votes (46.84 per cent). Defeated Liberal incumbent Jane Thornthwaite finished the count 9,827 ballots (37.7 per cent). Green candidate Harrison Johnston’ tallied 4,514 (16.4 per cent) and Libertarian Clayton Welwood came in fourth with 291 votes (1.06 per cent).
West Vancouver-Capilano’s seat will remain for the Liberals with newly elected MLA Karin Kirkpatrick taking 12,734 votes (53.55 per cent). NDP candidate Amelia Hill finished the count with 7,194 (30.25 per cent). Green challenger Rasoul Narimani netted 3,664 (15.41 per cent) and independent Anton Shendryk took 186 (0.78 per cent).
In West Vancouver-Sea to Sky, just 41 votes separate Liberal incumbent Jordan Sturdy from Green Party challenger Jeremy Valeriote. Valeriote had a five percentage point lead on Sturdy on election night but mail-in ballots counted this weekend swung the riding back into Sturdy’s favour. Any result that close is subject to an automatic recount under the supervision of a B.C. Supreme Court judge. A date for that recount has not yet been set.
