DonLever Posted December 12, 2017 Share Posted December 12, 2017 Dianne Watts formerly held the Surrey White Rock seat but resigned to run for the BC Liberals. Former BC Liberal Gordie Hogg defeated Conservative Kerry-Lynne Findlay by 1,617 votes. The Conservatives held the seat for decades - since 1949! So what does mean? I believe the by-election indicates another Liberal majority in 2019. Probably by a bigger majority. If the Conservatives can not hold a seat they held since 1949, they are not going to win the next general election. It shows the Conservatives as very weak under their new leader if they can't win a by election at a time when the governing party is supposedly at their lowest.
