His nearest competitor was the NDP's Morgane Oger.

Elections B.C. approved a recount based on a request by BC Citizens First candidate Phillip James Ryan because an advance voting ballot account recorded 403 votes for one candidate, and the tally sheet and parcel envelope containing ballots for that candidate listed 399.

Oger also requested a recount, but her request was denied.

Oger congratulated Sullivan on social media.
