    1 of 2 2 of 2

      A B.C. Liberal has won the hardest-fought race in the City of Vancouver.

      With 90 of 93 ballot boxes counted, Sam Sullivan has opened up a 417-vote lead over Morgane Oger.

      Sullivan, a former Vancouver mayor, was first elected to the B.C. legislature in 2013.

      Oger was attempting to become the first transgender woman to be elected to the B.C. legislature.

      The Green candidate, Bradley Darren Shende, has nearly 15.83 percent of the vote.

      Sullivan's victory gives the B.C. Liberals a 43-41 lead over the NDP in the seat count.

      The Greens have elected three candidates, including leader Andrew Weaver.

      Morgane Oger exceeded expectations but fell short  in her first attempt at provincial office.
