Carol Leclerc does well in claiming Terrace mayoral victory

All of the main polling stations have now reported their numbers

Carol Leclerc was a comfortable victor tonight in her successful bid to be the next mayor of Terrace.

With all main polling stations and advance polls now reporting in, the unofficial tally puts Leclerc at the top with 1,456 votes compared to the 969 gathered in by current city councillor Bruce Bidgood.

“[I’m] waiting for final numbers but looks like Carol is winning quite substantially,” said Bidgood from Xanders coffee shop where he and supporters have gathered.

“Disappointing, obviously,” said Bidgood. “But I know that we’ve done the very best we can do… The electorate have chosen, we have to respect it.”

“I thought it would be a little bit tighter,” Bidgood added of the results.
