“My son’s favourite number is five in hockey” said Bond, “Why does that matter to me? Because now I’ve been elected five times.” She thanked all who worked on her campaign and noted that the overall race remains close with the latest numbers on who has been elected or leading in specific ridings has the Liberals and NDP in a dead heat with 42 ridings each. Bond says since it is so close, she will continue watching the results until the picture becomes clear.
Bond pledged to continue to stand up for the Liberals along with all her fellow northern MLAs.
Mike Morris told the crowd he was once again humbled “T o have to the confidence of the voters in Prince George Mackenzie : He said “The people of Prince George-Mackenzie gave me the keys to Victoria, and they’ve done so once again.” He too expressed gratitude for all the hard work of those who worked on his behalf “It tugs at my heart strings to see so many people working for me.”
