Nenshi re-elected as Calgary's mayor as all 10 incumbent councillors keep their seats

Naheed Nenshi has been re-elected for a third term as Calgary's mayor and all of the incumbent councillors have secured their seats following an election day marred by long voter lineups, ballot shortages and slow results.

His main rival, Bill Smith, conceded at midnight, when Nenshi had 112,503 votes to Smith's 97,756.

"Today, we confidently said as a people, as a community, that we will be bold, we will move forward and we will do it together," said Nenshi to a cheering crowd at The National bar on 10th Avenue S.W. after Smith conceded.

By about 6 a.m., with all 234 of 234 of the ward voting stations reporting and 32 of 32 city-wide voting stations reporting, Nenshi had 199,122 votes, compared to 169,367 for Smith.

It's good to know that competence outshines prejudice in this country, still.

Congratulations to Calgary for re-electing everyone on the ballet.

That is some boldness - western style.
