BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson has been reelected in Vancouver-Quilchena.
Wilkinson did not campaign much in the riding, spending much of his time campaigning around the province. It’s the first time he’s campaigning as leader after being chosen to succeed Christy Clark in 2018.
Wilkinson has represented the second wealthiest riding in B.C. since 2013. He won the last election by more than 6,000 votes, after winning in the race before that by nearly 9,000.
Before him, the riding was held by former longtime BC Liberal finance minister Colin Hansen.
