The best finishes for Independents in BC

There were 35 independent candidates and 11 unaffiliated ones of which 7 were defacto independent.   Overall the independents did much better in this election than in past ones even if you ignore the impact of Bob Simpson and John van Dongen.

I used 3.5% as the cut off because it shows that there was some effort there and managed to capture all the independent candidates anyone may have heard of.

Here are the top independent candidates ranked by percentage of the vote they achieved.

  1. Vicki Huntingdon  48.03% 10,620 Delta South - 1/3
  2. Bob Simpson       37.28%  4,933 Cariboo North - 2/3
  3. John van Dongen   28.10%  5,138 Abbotsford South - 2/5
  4. Arthur Hadland    25.57%  3,021 Peace River North - 2/4
  5. Joseph Hughes     13.30%  2,239 Kootenay West - 3/4
  6. Gary Law           8.46%  1,428 Richmond Centre - 4/7
  7. Moe Gill           5.77%  1,004 Abbotsford West - 4/6
  8. Tyrel Andrew Phol  4.91%    413 Peace River South - 4/4
