B.C. voters cast ballots in provincial election
Voters across British Columbia marked their ballots Tuesday as a sometimes bruising 28-day election campaign fought on jobs, the economy and the influence of big donors in provincial politics wrapped up. Polls opened at 8 a.m. yesterday and Green Leader Andrew Weaver was among the first in line at a middle school in his Victoria-area constituency of Oak Bay-Gordon Head. Weaver was surrounded by excited students before he cast his ballot. “It was a lot of kids excited to see us come and vote there. And that’s what it’s about. It’s about making decisions that are not only for this generation, but also for the next,” he said. Liberal Leader Christy Clark said she’s confident the Liberals have done everything they could to reach voters.
