Here is a rundown of the elected female members of City Council, with the vote count as of 12:39 am with all 133 polls reporting:
- Adriane Carr (GREEN): 69,885
- Melissa De Genova (NPA): 53,324
- Jean Swanson (COPE): 48,955
- Colleen Hardwick (NPA): 47,811
- Christine Boyle (OneCity): 45,529
- Lisa Dominato (NPA): 44,769
- Rebecca Bligh (NPA): 44,117
- Sarah Kirby-Yung (NPA): 43,646
Incumbents Carr and De Genova retained their seat in City Council, while Kirby-Yung was previously a Park Board commissioner. Male members entail city councillors Pete Fry (GREEN) and former Park Board commissioner Michael Wiebe (GREEN) and independent mayor Kennedy Stewart.
While the new City Council breaks the glass ceiling for women, a representation of Vancouver’s large visible minority groups is noticeably lacking. In fact, for the first time in 32 years, there will be no Asian representation.
Elsewhere in Metro Vancouver, both Richmond and Surrey also have a high proportion of women filling in City Council seats, with women now accounting for five of the nine seats in each city.
