In Victoria, the race is virtually tied between the NDP's Rankin and the Green's Donald Galloway.
Mr. Rankin is ahead of Galloway by 300 votes as voting continues as of this time.

The Conservatives held Durham with Erin O'Toole as the runaway winner, retaining the Tory seat in the riding northeast of Toronto with 50.7 per cent and all polls reporting. The seat was formerly held by onetime Conservative MP and cabinet minister Bev Oda before she resigned in July under a public uproar about her ministerial expenses.
In Victoria it is a close battle between the Green Party's Donald Galloway and NDP candidate Murray Rankin in a race that has see-sawed throughout the night. Murray is a longtime friend who was a professor when I attended law school and he would make an excellent MP IMHO. He is well-versed in freedom of information, aboriginal and environmental issues and was a founding member of the BC Public Interest Advocacy Centre.
The CBC decision desk has just called the Victoria race as a win for the NDP.
Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.
