HST referendum results in the CRD

Here are the local results - only Oak Bay Gordon Head voted to keep the HST.   The next best No result was in Saanich North and the Islands and the third highest was in the only close riding in the last provincial election, Saanich South.



  • Riding                    Yes             No
  • Esquimalt-Royal Roads    12073 57.96%  8758 42.04%
  • Juan de Fuca             12600 62.50%  7559 37.50%
  • Oak Bay-Gordon Head      10738 48.60% 11356 51.40% 
  • Saanich North + Islands  14162 51.35% 13419 48.65%
  • Saanich South            12370 52.52% 11183 47.48% 
  • Victoria-Beacon Hill     11312 55.76%  8976 44.24% 
  • Victoria-Swan Lake       11068 57.73%  8103 42.27% 



The overall provincial results actually paint a better picture for the government that I had expected.   The results in this region indicate to me that Ida Chong should be safe in the next election and the two Saanich ridings will be in play, much as was the case in 2009.
