Kennedy Stewart wins razor-thin vote to become Vancouver’s next mayor

Former Vancouver East NDP MP Libby Davies, who was at the Waldorf, said she was “very happy” to see Mr. Stewart elected mayor after a civic election the likes of which she hasn’t seen in a long time. Ms. Davies said she believed the electorate voted for someone who would keep his promises and work well with others. “I think he showed in parliament that he’s an easygoing guy, and that he likes engaging with people,” she said. “He’s the kind of guy who can reach across the table and say, 'Let’s get partisanship out of the way.”
