Lisa Girbav, the 19-year-old Green Party candidate, says she is feeling great tonight as results show her holding at about 12 percent of the vote.That’s more than the Green party usually gets here and better than the Green Party is doing in general around the province.Ms Girbav said she made an effort to get younger voters out to the polls and thinks that might have something to do with the result.”I really tried to stand out at the all-candidate forums we had at the high schools,” she said from her home in Prince Rupert. “I think I got a lot of young voters out thistime.” Ms Girbav said she enjoyed being a candidate and will definitely consider running again.
