Conservative Diane Janzen is a factor in a close race as a separator of the right-wing votes

In an extremely close race in the Chilliwack riding, it looks like outgoing John Martin is heading for loss to BC NDP challenger Dan Coulter

With 54 out of 82 ballot boxes counted and the postal votes still to be counted, Coulter garnered 1,909 votes, or 3,463% of the electorate

BC Liberal candidate might see Diane Janzen as the main reason if he loses Initially, she sought to run for Martin as BC Liberal, but when the local riding association picked the incumbent, changed lanes and joined the Conservatives

Janzen ran with a ‘Don’t Divide the Right, Vote Right’ campaign slogan, but that’s precisely what happened

Janzen is currently a distant third with 1,117 votes, or 2,026% of the vote

But if those right-wing voters had voted for Martin, a close race might look a lot different

Coulter was also an exceptionally strong candidate for the BC NDP Historically speaking, the right-wing riding of Chilliwack has been a ‘safe’ riding for the BC Liberals and a bad bet for the NDP, but Coulter entered the race with the recognition of his name as President of the Chilliwack School Board and pundits like former Chilliwack Mayor Clint Hames screened him to win
