Historic night for Greens despite no breakthrough Adriane Carr was re-elected to Vancouver city council with the largest share of votes — 41 per cent of all ballots — but the Greens did not realize the complete breakthrough it hoped for since she will remain her party’s lone councillor at city hall.
However, Carr recognized the night’s results as a historic success for the Greens. For the first time in Canada, the party was elected to all three municipal bodies: park and school board in addition to city council.
“In Stuart [Mackinnon] and Michael [Wiebe] and Janet [Fraser] we have now, with myself, formed the largest team of elected Greens ever in the history of Canada,” said Carr as she spoke to a room of supporters at the Creekside community centre.
Stuart Mackinnon and Michael Wiebe were two of seven candidates elected as park board commissioners. Janet Fraser will be one of nine school board trustees.
Cleta Brown and Pete Fry were not elected to city council, and Mischa Oak was not elected to school board.
