While Clark's promise of a booming liquefied natural gas industry has not materialized over the past four years, Clark was able to point to B.C.'s strong economy as proof of the Liberals' financial savvy.

While only 44 out of 86 polls in the riding have been reported (totalling 8,428 votes), news outlets have declared Eby the victor.

Richard Johnston, a political scientist at the University of British Columbia, said he doesn't expect negotiations on the possible framework of a minority government to start until after the final results are known. I just feel comfortable talking to people.

Premier hopeful Christy Clark made the final stop on her provincial campaign in Abbotsford on Tuesday evening.

The NDP almost swept the city of Vancouver and won a handful of battleground ridings in the suburbs of Metro Vancouver, including seats in Burnaby, Surrey, Coquitlam and Delta.

"It's not the outcome we wanted in this riding,"she told supporters". Despite Weaver's comments, any independent look at the parties' platforms would find the Greens have much more in common with the NDP.

The BC Liberals are the most popular choice, according to our audience - 67% plan to vote Liberal.

The Green Party started the day in Vancouver noting the mudslinging was particularly rough this election campaign. But Furstenau still comfortably won the riding by 1,500 votes over her nearest challenger from the NDP. British Columbians voted for action for action on climate change.

"I'm very happy, and I'm very grateful to this room full of people, many of whom have been working on this campaign with me for six months", said Furstenau, who is known for leading the fight against a controversial contaminated soil dump in her community of Shawnigan Lake. "A couple of weeks out I still think it's worth waiting for".

Clark said she intends to lead the next government, adding the result presents an opportunity to open up a new dialogue "about how we do things, what we should do, how we want to shape the future of our province". The Green Party has 17% support, while 4% support other parties.

"It's not worth it to change government", he said after casting his vote for the Liberals in North Vancouver-Lonsdale.

Asked about the possibility of co-operating with the Greens, Horgan said he is interested in improving public health, education, child care and housing.

But they anxious about the NDP splitting the vote on the left of the political spectrum with the Green Party.

"It wasn't about number of votes for me".

But she says winning even two seats - one more than last election - would be a victory for the third-place party. "I've found a political home".
