Aside from watching the hockey game tonight, I’ll also be keeping an eye on the civic election results for all cities in the Greater Vancouver region. Actually, my focus will be on Vancouver and Surrey as they’re the municipalities to which I am most closely tied (and I voted in Vancouver). My source for information tonight is the CBC online and hopefully after the polls close at 8:00pm I’ll have some good news to report (*cough* go Paul! *cough*)
Update: Gregor Robertson is being called the new mayor of the city of Vancouver [CBC] with 123 of 133 polls reporting. More results can be found on the CivicBC site although it seems to be up and down this evening (probably due to high traffic).
Update: You can follow chatter and results on Twitter – #civicvote2008.
Update: Dianne Watts has been re-elected as the mayor of Surrey, but our friend Paul just didn’t quite make the cut for City Council and School Trustee [Surrey Results].
