British Columbia general election, 1907


British Columbia general election, 1907

The British Columbia general election of 1907 was the eleventh general election for the Province of British Columbia, Canada. It was held to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. The election called on December 24 1906, and held on February 2 1907. The new legislature met for the first time on March 7 1907.

The governing Conservative party won a second term in government, with almost half the popular vote, and a majority of the seats in the legislature, increasing its number of seats by 4 to 26.

The Liberal Party lost 4 seats in the legislature, despite winning about the same share of the popular vote that it had in the 1903 election.

The Socialist Party won one additional seat to bring its total to three.

Results

Notes:

* Party did not nominate candidates in the previous election.

1 One Conservative candidate, R. McBride, who contested and was elected in both Dewdney and Victoria City, is counted twice.

2 Organized in 1906. Not the same as the Canadian Labour Party of B.C. which contested the 1924 election. Sometimes referred to as "Independent Labour Party" by the newspapers which creates some confusion with the situation in Nanaimo City and Newcastle.

3 Although the candidates in Nanaimo City and Newcastle called themselves "Independent Labour" candidates, the Conservative press described them as "Liberal-Labour" candidates. They did have Liberal support in both cases and no Liberals were nominated for either District. They were also repudiated by the Victoria branch of the Canadian Labour Party of BC.
