It’s a win for Adam Olsen in Saanich North and the Islands

Sidney, B.C. - In a room full of cheers and happy tears, Adam Olsen’s family, friends and supporters celebrate a big victory here in Saanich North and the Islands. 

“We have reached out and captivated the voters with a positive vision for all British Columbians, and I can’t wait to get started in the legislature representing you - the people of Saanich North and the Islands,” says Olsen. 

“I stand here today feeling so very grateful, so very excited. But the diverse views of our riding are clear, and I know it’s my job now to represent our community as a whole in the B.C. legislature. Political opinions aside, the people of Saanich North and the Islands have won, because our community is engaged and excited about politics again,” Olsen stated while thanking the other three candidates for a race that kept him on his toes. 

This traditionally liberal riding was considered to be the Green Party’s best chance of picking up an additional seat based on the 2013 results where only 379 votes separated Olsen’s third place from Holman’s victory. Today’s result demonstrates a dramatic increase of support for Olsen and the B.C. Green Party in Saanich North and the Islands.

The democratic process is alive and well in Saanich North and the Islands - a riding known for it’s high voter turn out - seeing approximately 70% of eligible voters make it to the polls.
