Trudeau's B.C. election intervention may come at a price

  • National Newswatch

Did Justin Trudeau just hand the B.C. election to Christy Clark? In trying to do so, has he risked the wrath of Donald Trump?Those are just two of the questions unanswered after an election in which all three major B.C. parties were able to claim a victory of sorts.Clark's Liberals were reduced to a minority, but the NDP could soon form government, in coalition with the Greens, who now hold the balance of power.This convoluted scenario is provisional on recounts that could take two weeks and may yet deliver Clark an additional seat, allowing her to regain her majority.The tightest of margins separates the Liberals and the NDP – just 17,827 in the popular vote, with thousands of absentee votes still to come in.
