Jennifer Clarke – Vancouver Centre
Vancouver, BC – It was hours after the polling stations closed in Vancouver Centre before it finally became clear that incumbent Hedy Fry had retained her seat as one of only two Liberal MPs in British Columbia. Jennifer Clarke, the Conservative candidate for Vancouver Centre acknowledged Fry’s win in what was a hard fought battle.
“I was proud to be part of this very close three-way race”, said Clarke. “I regret that I will not be Vancouver Centre’s Member of Parliament, but I congratulate Hedy Fry on her win and wish her well in representing the wishes of the constituents of this very diverse riding in Ottawa. I also want to thank Karen Shillington, Adriane Carr, and all of the other candidates and their supporters for their vigorous participation in the election campaign and their valuable contribution to our great nation’s vibrant democracy. Most of all I want to thank my campaign team for their outstanding efforts and all of the voters who went to the polls and gave me their votes. To have such support and confidence from so many is always a humbling experience.”
“I am thrilled that we now have a Conservative majority in Parliament,” declared Clarke. “We now have a stable government which can get on with the business of supporting Canadians by creating jobs and keeping taxes low, while increasing support for seniors and care-givers, healthcare and education, and by keeping our streets and communities safe for everyone.”
