Oct 22 2018, 12:18 am

After a close battle that ran into the late hours of the night, Kennedy Stewart was elected as the new mayor of Vancouver.

When the last ballots were counted, Stewart received 28.72% of the vote, just 984 votes ahead of Ken Sim.

The independent candidate faced a packed room of supporters after confirming his victory, along with many kind words of congratulations across social media.

But of course, as with every election, a number of questions and concerns were raised after the fact.

Also worth noting, was a strong push by Shauna Sylvester.

The independent candidate received the 35,537 votes after an admirable campaign.
