COPE goes to runoff with Cadman, Louis in lead

September 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The 322 voters here just heard the results of the first round. No one has got the required 162 votes needed to win. David Cadman has 161. Tim Louis has 157. Ellen Woodsworth has 126. Meena Wong, 118. Terry Martin, who had 82, has now been dropped and the second round is underway.

    whilst we wait (impatiently!), it looks like francis’ woodsworth/wong votesplit scenario will propel louis back into big league civic politics.

    not a disaster, given that vancouverites don’t HAVE to vote for him, and if they do, he’s a pretty good councilor. but it’s a wasted opportunity. of all the people on the 2002-2005 council, ellen woodsworth was the one whose passing i mourned the most. after sam and mayor larry, louis will be a hard sell.
