Liberals hang on to win BC's first minority government in 65 years


Premier Christy Clark now leads, with 43 seats as opposed to the NDP's 41 and the Green party's 3.

She says she has worked with Green Party leader Andrew Weaver in the past and called him a "smart, thoughtful and reasonable guy".

Kathryn Harrison, also a political science professor at UBC, said the Greens must weigh the risks of either choice but the Liberals may wait to do any negotiating until the final ballot count is released, which must happen by May 24.

Premier Rachel Notley hasn't commented on the election results so far.

The Greens doubled their popular vote from eight per cent in 2013 to 16 per cent Tuesday, said Kathryn Harrison of UBC.

Clark and Weaver do have a history of positive dialogue, so her unwillingness to publicly beg for Green support might trace back to those ties.

He did not explicitly say if he would ask Weaver to form a coalition government, however.

Solomon initially thought Grade 4 and 5 students might be too young for the vote, but she's since changed her mind.

Ottawa inflation rate holds steady at 1.6% in April
The agency says total retail trade in March was almost $48.3 billion thanks to stronger sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers. Saskatchewan's annual inflation rate sped up to 1.4 per cent last month after rising just 0.6 per cent in March.

It comes on the heels of a cliffhanger election that left the province with a minority parliament, and the Liberals apparently in the driver's seat holding 43 seats to the NDP's 41.

"A majority of British Columbians voted for a new government and I believe that is what they deserve", NDP leader Horgan told jubilant supporters to chants of "NDP, NDP".

"BC Greens have said we can work with anyone", Weaver said.

Advance votes are still being counted tonight and could swing the result in some close ridings.

Greens won two former NDP ridings and helped a Liberal to win in a third by siphoning off NDP votes, she said.

With three seats, the Green party holds the balance of power in the legislature - a remarkable position for Weaver after becoming the first Green elected four years ago.

Our way is to inspire people to get out to vote.

"He's a smart, thoughtful, reasonable guy, and so we've found places where we can work together".

That means McConnell can afford to lose just two senators; Vice President Mike Pence would vote to break a 50-50 tie in his constitutional role as vice president of the Senate.

NDP leader John Horgan spoke later in the afternoon.

Almost 8,600 students at more than 50 local public schools, private schools and alternate education sites cast ballots and returned NDP candidates in all four ridings.

Clark, for her part, has worked well in the past with Weaver.

"Small parties like the Greens are forever disadvantaged by a first-past-the post system".

On the West Shore, the NDP showed their support remains strong, with party leader John Horgan racing to a huge victory over challengers Cathy Noel of the Liberals and Brendan Ralfs of the Greens - that despite spending very little time personally campaigning in his Langford-Juan de Fuca riding.

Speaking at a campaign office in her riding, Clark said she's confident the Liberals have done everything they could to reach voters over the past four weeks of campaigning.

If the Clark Liberals falter and prove unable to govern as a minority, British Columbians could yet 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.
