Wilkinson concedes in B.C. provincial election

Shortly after 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson conceded the 2020 B.C. election in a tweet.

“I’ve just got off the phone with John Horgan and congratulated him on his win. The people of B.C. have spoken, and I want to thank every BC Liberal candidate and volunteer who helped make this campaign happen,” tweeted Wilkinson. “We’re still in the middle of a devastating pandemic, and our focus remains on making sure every person in the province is safe, healthy and able to get back on their feet.”

On election night, after the major broadcasting networks called a BC NDP majority, Wilkinson did not concede defeat saying that his party would wait for the final count as hundreds of thousands of votes have yet to be counted.
