Re: 2018 Vancouver Municipal Election Thread

No doubt that this year's election is one of massive changes as there have been 16 new mayors in Metro Vancouver.

How many of the 16 faces can you name?


祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。
改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。
祝你老鼠年行大運。
恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

Some very close votes this year and Peachland is now officially a tie with some 1700 votes cast.

Bowen Island, difference of 2

Others with wins in the 2 digits.

A lot of upsets as well.

You missed Port Moody which is in some ways a very interesting one.

Rob Vagramov showed up at my door during the previous election some 4 years ago saying he wanted to run for council. He was the only one of the council hopefuls that actually did any door to door in our neighbourhood. For that alone, I was prepared to vote for him. I was surprised however that he got in. Why? He was 22. I barely knew my elbow from my arse at that age but here was this young, articulate man that had the ability to talk about Port Moody and it's issues and wanted to do something about it. Well, now he is 26 and Mayor of a reasonable sized community. Call me impressed. I don't know if he will do a good job but he certainly has convinced enough people that he has that ability to toss out the incumbent Mayor.

I feel bad for the two Peachland candidates tied at some 800 plus some votes each. If the recount fails to get a winner a judge will draw a name out of the hat.

In a small town like that it's too bad they can't do a re-run - but of course that costs.
