Election Recount

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              A recount has been requested in the Courtenay-Comox riding. Elections B-C says the request comes from Liberal candidate Jim Benninger, who lost to New Democrat Ronna-Rae Leonard by nine votes in Tuesday’s provincial election. The recount is to be conducted between May 22nd and 24nd. The B-C Liberal party won 43 seats to the N-D-P’s 41 and the Green party’s three seats, but 176-thousand absentee ballots are yet to be counted and there were several other close races.
