After an election in Vancouver that stretched into the wee hours of Sunday morning, Vancouver mayoral candidate Kennedy Stewart has been selected as the new mayor of Vancouver.
Stewart, who ran as an independent candidate, was neck-and-neck with NPA mayoral candidate Ken Sim, before breaking away late in the night to claim the win. He came out on top with 28.72% of the vote, 984 votes ahead of Sim.
And while the NPA may have lost the mayor’s chair, they will still have representation on council.
Vancouver’s new city council is as follows:
Kennedy Stewart (Independent) – 49,812 votes
