B.C. election results: Seat changes, landslide victories and more
VANCOUVER – As the results from the 2019 election are finalized, some clear winners and losers have emerged in British Columbia.
Andrew Scheer's Conservatives managed to increase their seat count in the province by eight ridings on Monday – mostly at the expense of Justin Trudeau's Liberals. The party also took one seat from Jagmeet Singh's NDP.
With results in for all 42 ridings, the Tories have 17 seats, while the Liberals and NDP have 11 each. The Greens maintain their two ridings, while Independent Jody Wilson-Raybould managed to hold onto her seat in Vancouver Granville.

In the 2015 federal election, the Liberals won a historic 17 seats in B.C. – the most in the party's history.
The NDP claimed 14, the Tories took 10 and the Green party took just one. Byelections brought the Liberal count to 18, Conservatives to nine, Green to two and the NDP to 13 heading into Monday's vote.
Landslide wins across B.C.
The steepest lead based on initial results was in Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies.
Conservative incumbent Bob Zimmer had a 57.2 per cent lead over Liberal runner-up Mavis Erickson. With 92.3 per cent of polls in, Zimmer had 34,125 votes compared to Erickson's 5,846.
Other winners with a lead of more than 30 per cent were Conservative Todd Doherty, in Cariboo-Prince George, and the NDP's Jenny Kwan in Vancouver East.
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May had just under 30 per cent of the vote in her riding of Saanich-Gulf Islands.
Chilliwack-Hope's Conservative candidate Mark Strahl had a lead of 28 per cent as of 10:30 p.m., and Conservative Mel Arnold had a lead of 26 per cent in North Okanagan-Shuswap.
Don Davies, NDP candidate for Vancouver Kingsway, had a lead over his Liberal opponent of about 25 per cent.
While many of B.C.'s ridings were called within a couple of hours, a few were neck-and-neck late into the night. The ridings of Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam and Port Moody-Coquitlam were both won by fewer than 350 votes.
That's not quite a slim enough margin to trigger an automatic recount – but it's close.
The next closest riding was South Okanagan-West Kootenay, which NDP candidate Richard Cannings won with a lead of 722 votes, or 1.1 per cent of the total count.
