Green light burns out?

According to preliminary results, on Tuesday incumbent Saanich North and the Islands Liberal candidate Murray Coell held onto his riding with just 1.43 percentage points more of the vote than his New Democrat competitor Gary Holman. So what happened? Well, the advanced education and labour market development minister's vote share actually increased by 1.25 percentage points when compared to the 2005 election. But the New Democrats' share also increased - by 6.46 percentage points. What decreased was the Greens' share, with their candidate Tom Bradfield winning 10.91 percent of the vote - 4.21 percentage points less than the last election. So did Mr. Holman succeed in stealing some of Mr. Bradfield's support?
