The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

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.
