Results a sign voters want parties 'to work together,' Clark says

And Andrew Weaver's Green party even threatened at times to secure the balance of power in a minority government.

As of 9 p.m. the ballrom is almost full now and cheers go up as the television incdicates a lead for Saanich North and the Islands Green Party candidate Adam Olsen draws cheers from the crowd.

Clark also deflected questions about her role in the Liberal Party's loss of seats.

While Horgan said it's clear British Columbians want change after 16 years under the Liberals, Clark said she reads the result as a plea to the parties to work together.

Elections BC says absentee ballots won't be counted until May 22, and there may be recounts in some close ridings.

And if not for local NDP riding in-fighting in Cowichan, Columbia River-Revelstoke and Fraser-Nicola over bitterly contested nominations, likely costing the party three seats, Horgan would be premier-elect now.

"To me, the voters are never wrong and we got a result from the voters and British Columbians told us what they want really out of this election - that we make sure we do things differently".

Horgan did an wonderful job despite being discounted by many commentators - bringing the NDP tantalizingly close to a majority government and still on the brink of possibly becoming premier.

Weaver, now holding the balance of power, also hinted at how his party would handle votes in the legislature, saying the Greens would take an issue-by-issue approach, with all decisions on an "evidence based" and "principled" position.

The Liberal campaign focused on economic growth and job creation. There were plenty of smiles and laughter early on at Liberal headquarters as the party took an early lead, but the mood became tenser as the evening progressed and the NDP began to catch up.

"We offered people a change that they could count on and British Columbians delivered that change tonight", said Weaver.

It's not easy being Green, says Andrew Weaver, but it's exciting when you have a Green caucus.

A pacer entering a race after the start is against IAAF rules and would mean the result would not count as a world record. Kipchoge , said in an interview last week that anything slower than the current world record "would be a failure".

In this case, a spokesperson for Christy Clark tells CKNW Judith Guichon had that conversation with her Wednesday morning.

Based on the current results, the Greens could prop up the Liberals or form a coalition with the NDP, as 44 seats are needed for a majority.

But Clark was somewhat contrite, acknowledging that her party had seen both its seat count and popular vote diminished, and that she may have to court the Greens' support.

This election is being fought on a new electoral map and 87 seats in the legislature are up for grabs, with 371 candidates vying for them. They said Trans Mountain would be the most immediate casualty, with a knock-on effect on heavy oil producers. "We exist because the other parties aren't offering something ...

I think people are exhausted (and) I think we can show B.C. what we're about". Political donations from corporations and unions were election issues for both the Liberals and NDP.

When it was all said and done, Christy Clark and the BC Liberals claimed the province's first minority government in more than six decades.
