Larson returns for second term as MLA for Boundary Similkameen

FILE PHOTO- Linda Larson returns for a second term as MLA for the Boundary SImilkameen riding following today's election, May 9, 2017.

OSOYOOS - Incumbent Linda Larson succeeded in her bid to serve a second term for the Boundary Similkameen riding tonight.

With nearly all polls accounted for, Larson leads with 8,553 votes.

The four way race in the riding saw NDP hopeful Colleen Ross take 6,497 votes in her first election, while Green Party Vonnie Lavers received 2,004.

Latecomer to the race, Independent Peter Entwistle, may have provided the biggest surprise, taking 2,985 votes. Either the Green Party or Entwistle's votes could have swayed the riding to Ross from Larson.
