With the results from the last voting station coming in at 12:43 a.m., it appears that independent candidate Kennedy Stewart will be the new mayor of Vancouver.
Final polling numbers show Stewart with 49,812 votes (28.72 per cent) to the NPA’s Ken Sim at 48,828 (28.15 per cent). Independent Shauna Sylvester came in third with 35,537 votes (20.49 per cent.)
With such a slim victory, no word yet if Sim will ask for a recount. Stay tuned.
